To obtain a position as a part-time dental hygienist in a team oriented office. QUALIFICATIONS Performed periodontal therapy. Performed radiographs, including digital and panorex. Performed intra and extraoral examines. Skilled with ultrasonic scalers. Extensive experience with elderly and pediatric patients. Dear Dr. Algenio, I am a dental hygienist with nearly thirty years of experience in the dental field, including my experience as a dental assistant prior to entering the dental hygiene profession. It was necessary for me to move from the state of Michigan in 2007 to become a full-time caregiver for my aging mother and aunt. Since my dental license was not recognized in the state of Georgia, I pursued training in the certified nursing assistant program. Now that I have returned to Michigan, I look forward to resuming my dental hygiene career. I pride myself in oral hygiene education and developing a comfortable rapport with my patients, always reinforcing positive habits while suggesting areas of improvement. My experience with culturally diverse and medically compromised individuals has given me an acute sensitivity to patients with special needs. Having worked as a dental temp, I recognize each office for its unique style of practice while always maintaining professional standards.
