Dear Sir or Madame:
I would like to apply for the position of a dental hygienist in your facility. With my experience and recently earned Bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene, I am confident that I will be a valuable addition to your office.
During my experience, I have developed a passion for providing quality care to patients. I am extremely dedicated, ambitious, and have excellent communication skills. I enjoy learning new techniques and trying new products that improve a patient’s oral hygiene. I have a strong expertise in evaluating a patient’s overall oral health and determining treatment based on patient’s individual health history.
Particularly, I am skilled in:
• Removing stains and plaque from patient’s teeth
• Applying sealants and fluoride to protect teeth
• Documenting patient treatment data and plans
I hope that my experience in dental hygiene is what your dental office is seeking. My enclosed resume has further details. I may be reached at (803)-640-0395. I look forward to having the opportunity to discuss your dental hygienist needs in person in the near future.
