Hygienist Resume Samples

The job description of a Hygienist straddles the line between health and aesthetics, but the relevant duties are more independent and extensive than that of a dental assistant. The exact work activities are mentioned on the Hygienist Resume as follows – using dental instruments to clean accretions, and calcareous deposits; looking for indications of oral cancer; recording dental decay and disease; visually examining gums for signs of sores or other dental health problems; sharpening and sterilizing dental instruments, and maintaining dental hygiene programs for patients.

To legally work at this level, the following skills and abilities are required – the ability to administer local anesthetic agents; knowledge of using and operating X-ray machines; knowledgeable about oral hygiene and dental health, current CPR certificate, and state hygiene license; and staying current on Hepatitis B vaccination. An Associate’s degree from an accredited hygiene program is commonly seen on eligible resumes.
