Dear Mr. Ford:
I would like to apply for the position of a Dental Hygienist at the Dental Aesthetics, as advertised in the Daily Times. With my training and license in dental hygiene and one year of hands on experience, I am quite confident that I will be a valuable addition to your facility.
During my experience and training, I have developed a 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
• Documenting patient treatment data and plans
With my ability to manage both procedural and administrative sides of a dental facility, I can contribute effectively in your clinic’s success. I look forward for an opportunity to meet with you so we can discuss the possibility of my role at Dental Aesthetics on a more professional level. You may reach me at (203) 222-2222 if you need any further information from me.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
