Ms. Sara Johnson
Hiring Manager
Houston City Dental Clinic
162 Example Street
Houston, TX 65214


Dear Ms. Johnson:

I was pleased to see your advertisement for a Dental Front Desk Clerk (position ID 667) in the  Houston Globe of April 11. My secretarial and clinical skills, experience with ethnically diverse populations and enthusiasm for providing an excellent customer service makes me well qualified candidate for this position. The current Global Times article about Houston City Dental Clinic makes it clear that your staff brings a great deal of expertise and skill to their work, and I would like to be an active member of that team.

During my part-time work as a front desk clerk with ABC Hospital, I was responsible for helping run the medical office smoothly; answering phone calls, scheduling appointments and calling patients for reminders. I am very skilled in greeting patients, completing patients’ paperwork, filling insurance information, and collecting fee at the time of the service. In the role of a front desk employee, I pulled files and dental records for the meeting, filed official procedure from the previous appointment and filed the charts. My enclosed resume contains complete details about the skills and abilities you are seeking in a dental front desk clerk.

I look forward to discussing my strong interest in this position with you, and will call your office next week to see if a meeting can be arranged. Thank you for your time and consideration.


Sincerely yours,

Anna Smith
