Dear Ms. Majors:
Are you interested in hiring a loyal, task and detail-oriented professional, renowned among patients as trustworthy and dependable, generating patient loyalty for the practice? If so, then may we meet to further discuss the value-add I will bring to the position of Office Coordinator and Patient Administrator? I have attached my resume for your review.
I excel in workflow management, am an active contributor and team player, and am ignited by a challenge. Supporting the business and alleviating Senior Management of the daily operational responsibilities, allowing the dental professionals to focus solely on their areas of expertise, are my fortes!
Though content in my current position at Community Dental Care, I am seeking a new opportunity where I can make a larger contribution to the bottom-line. My initiative and creativity have generated significant savings to my employer including:
⇒ Achieved a $6,000 payroll reduction by accessing a government wage subsidy program.
⇒ Recouped 100% of a Worker’s Compensation Claim totalling $1700.
I am anxious to provide your firm with similar results, as I understand the criteria to run a profitable practice management operation! In short, I know I have the necessary combination of skills and experience to succeed in the position of Office Coordinator and Patient Administrator with Ottawa Dental Associates and provide measurable results.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I await your call.
