FAQs: One of our most popular pages is the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page as it contains a comprehensive list of all the best tips, tools, techniques I have written about in dental hygiene job searching over the years.

Positive vs. Active Writing: It’s important that you write your resume and other materials in active voice as it’s more succinct, saves space on your resume, and is actually simpler and easier for employers to read. This page will help you see and understand the difference.
Dental Hygiene Schools: This page contains a current map and list of dental hygiene schools in the United States. Many of them offer continuing education and refresher courses if you have been un-licensed or out of work for a while.

This communicates to employers that you are both tech-savy and current with the times. It also satisfies their need to find more about you on the Internet prior to interviewing you. Research shows that more than 90% of all hiring managers will “Google” the names of potential hires before they decide to interview them. One of the top search results that come back for most people is their LinkedIn profile. Plus you can join our network of more than 16,000 hygienists and start making connections.
