What are the typical duties of a dental receptionist?

My sister just sent me a text offering me a receptionist job at the dental office that she works at. She didn't explain the duties though. I've never had a receptionist job so.... What are the typical duties of a dental receptionist? Would it be a difficult since I have no experience? Haha! Ok I know that but am I supposed to be like and expert in insurance or something like that?

"Dr. Tooth's office, this is Vanessa, how can I help you?" "Dr. Tooth, Billy is here for his appointment." "Will you be paying with cash, check or credit?" "Do you want to schedule your next appointment?" That should sum it up.

Nope, it's not difficult. You'll have to deal with a lot of people on a daily basis.
