Job posts that their first line is "This is an ENTRY LEVEL position for front desk/greeter"
Then lists all requirements they are looking for and does not specify any significant knowledge.
Then their last requirement is "MUST HAVE AT LEAST 2 YEARS EXPERIENCE IN DENTAL OFFICE".

WTF?! I would consider 2 straight years in one field as NOT entry level...

Stupid aholes! Im getting tired of seeing "entry level" but requiring 2-5 years in that area.

Entry level, must have a Masters degree in Business. For a Receptionist job? Really?

I'm sorry. The job market sucks in a lot of places. For me, I was overqualified for a lot of positions because I have a college education. Because I didn't have enough lab experience, I wasn't experienced enough for jobs that I needed my degree for.

Still apply!  When I was looking for jobs while going to school I never let that requirement stop me and I always got the job.  In your resume or interview just talk about the skills that you possess that would make you perfect for the job i.e. great at multitasking, organized, great time management etc.  and always talk about your willingness to learn.  You should be fine but definitely don't let that stop you from applying!
