Your dental hygienist cover letter should be able to say, “Don’t look further because I am the one you want to hire”. Yes, even if you are applying for an entry-level dental hygienist position.
Hiring managers receive dozens of cover letters during each recruitment process. And you do not want your cover letter to be just a common one in the pile. So make sure that you spend time writing a cover letter.
Even if you have a referral or you have networked your way into finding a job opening, you still need a strong cover letter. Networks and referrals can only take you as far as getting you in touch with hiring managers. The rest is up to you – and of course your application documents, particularly the cover letter and resume.
Let us take a look at the following cover letter for an entry-level dental hygienist position:
