Hey guys,

I've sent an email to a dentist requesting for a rec letter in May and followed up in early June but she has not responded to it. So right now I am not sure what to do about obtaining a rec letter from a dentist. I've recently shadowed another dentist a couple of times and am not sure if i should ask because I was only able to shadow for about 8 hours and might not be back anytime soon since Im buckling down to study for DAT and covid. What do yall think I should do at this point?

Yeah you might try asking the doctor you only worked with for 8 hours for a letter, just explain your situation. Often they’re understanding and will do you the professional courtesy.
