I don't know how to introduce myself in e-mails, am I Dr X's assistant or Dr. X assistant?

Use the possessive form: Dr. X's assistant.

You could also turn it around and say it without the possessive: an assistant to Dr. X.

You are Dr Smith's assistant in almost all cases. If his name ends in s, you may be Dr Jones' assistant or Dr Jones's assistant depending on the style you and Dr Jones prefer.

Doctor X possesses an assistant (well, he doesn't own you, but he owns your services as his assistant, so the possession stands). As such, you use the 's to denote said possession:

I am Dr. X assistant.

The meaning conveyed is I am the/an assistant working with Dr. X. You might say that as well.
