To maximize your chances of success in a job application, you should always include a cover letter and a professional resume. Including a cover letter in your job application allows you to add context to the health care skills noted in your dental hygienist resume. Plus it allows you to connect with the recruiter, increasing the likelihood of being called.
Your cover letter should be between half a page and three-quarters of a page. Any shorter than this will leave the recruiter with the impression that you didn’t care enough about the job to put in the effort to write a cover letter. Any longer than three-quarters of a page and a busy recruiter reading through dozens of applications will likely skip over yours. Using a cover letter template can more easily stay within the cover letter length limits.
This cover letter example will work regardless of how much experience you have. Simply replace the sections that cover work experience with education, volunteer work or any other relevant activities to the job and show you have the dental hygiene skills needed to be an asset to the company.
