Trying to convert a date column so that output is in the form of mmddyyyy.

I am doing :
rtrim(convert(char,datepart(mm,Citations.dob)))+
rtrim(convert(char,datepart(dd,Citations.dob)))+
rtrim(convert(char,datepart(year,Citations.dob)))

However output is 912008 - it is getting rid of the leading zero in the month and day
