Dear Mr. Ford:
With my training and license in dental hygiene and 3 years’ hands on experience, I am quite confident that I will be a valuable addition to Dental Aesthetics as a Dental Hygienist.
Through my experience and training, I have developed strong expertise in evaluating a patient’s overall oral health and following through with oral hygiene procedures based on patient’s individual health history. Since I have extensive knowledge of dental terminology, I can effectively provide hygiene instructions to patients along with dispensing oral hygiene aids in an effectual manner.
Particularly, I am highly skilled in:
• Removing stains, and plaque from patient’s teeth
• Applying sealants and fluorides to help protect teeth
• Taking and developing dental x-rays

Utilizing my ability to manage both procedural and administrative sides of a dental facility, I can contribute effectively to your clinic’s success. I look forward for an opportunity to meet with you to discuss Dental Aesthetics’ culture and my relevant attributes in detail.
