Fleeing ISIS in Mosul, Iraq: International Dentist Program Personal Statement Sample 1st Paragraph

ISIS Mosul dentistry.jpg

I hope to be selected for your distinguished DDS Program for International Dentists because I am a dentist from Iraq who has shown a great deal of dedication to dentistry under difficult circumstances.  My father was a distinguished professor and a member of the university senate in our city. I hoped to follow in his footsteps and to also become a distinguished academic in Iraq but ISIS conquered our entire province and put an end to those dreams, at least insofar as they were based in our native land. ISIS was actively hunting my father so he was lucky to escape, as was I. My father went to another country; I chose America, dreaming of dental school, coming here first as a refugee. I am now a permanent resident and hope to resume my career here in my new home. A hard worker with great optimism and drive, I have my sights set on years of study, continuing after earning my DDS Degree in the area of Orthodontics, an area in which I have already earned a doctoral degree in Turkey. I hope to return to my country of origin someday to help put smiles on the faces of children scarred by war.

Sample 1st Paragrph: Residency Position in Orthodontics, Kuwaiti

A Kuwaiti man born and raised in my country, I went to Egypt to study dentistry and graduated in that country (2003 to 2007), this enabled me to make lasting, important professional ties with dentists not only in Egypt, but also dentists from other parts of the Middle East. This has helped me to better understand some of the complexity of the many challenges facing us in this part of the world in terms of providing adequate dental care to our peoples. I now have 10 years of experience as a full time dentist providing a wide range of dental procedures and treatments and making a thoroughgoing exploration of general dentistry, long enough to realize in what area I want to now specialize and give my all for the balance of my career: Orthodontics.

International Dentist Personal Statement Sample 1st Paragraph, Woman Dentist Applicant from Jordan


A Jordanian woman and dentist who is now a permanent resident of the USA, I hope to be selected for and complete your distinguished program for International Dentists so that I can become licensed to practice dentistry here in America, in addition to the country where I completed dental school, Palestine, and the country where I was born and raised, Saudi Arabia. My special passion lies in the area of Pediatric Dentistry and I hope to build a lifetime specialization. Most particularly, I look forward to many decades to come of providing dental treatments to special needs children.
