Dear Human Resources Director,

As I approach the completion of my first year at Springfield Dental School, I am seeking an assistant dental hygienist position and have enclosed my resume for your review.

I am driven to excel and am known for my dexterity and perfectionism. While at the Springfield Dental School, I have gained not only basic knowledge of dental hygiene but also inspiration, focus, and commitment.

I feel I would be an asset to your dental hygiene team and would like an opportunity to speak with you about positions at your clinic.

Thank you for reviewing my resume. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Sincerely yours,

Linda Wrpgn
