To Whom It May Concern:
My name is XXXX DDS and it gives me immense pleasure to provide a recommendation for XXXX whom I have gotten to know quite well through the course of the last year as she has observed and assisted me in my practice of dentistry. We share the same group of friends, all dentists trained and from India, brainstorming together concerning the issues and challenges that we most frequently face as we strive for constant advancement in our profession. Technically speaking I am XXXX’s mentor; yet, the advanced abilities that she has already acquired as a dental professional combined with her youth, vigor, and extreme professional dedication has resulted in her inspiring me just as much as I would like to think that I have inspired her.
Thus, it is an enormous privilege for me to write this letter of recommendation on XXXX behalf for selection to your Advanced Standing Program for International Dentists. Among her finest qualities are her flexibility, always thinking on her feet, sheer diligence, and great passion for dentistry. Serving as her mentor has been among the finest and most memorable experiences of my own career so far and sets the standard for what is best among us, as dentists, as Indians, and as international thinker/practitioners in the area of global dentistry, always with one eye on the underserved, especially children. For the past year, I have been practicing at ABC Dentistry for children. Previously, I gained 12 years of experience serving at Growing Grins Pediatric Dentistry. Shriya has shown tremendous passion for Pediatric Dentistry in particular, which is my central, developing focus; thus, we often connect to gather information and share knowledge and concerns about Pediatric Dentistry.
XXXX is always, placid, calm, with her nerves never rattled. The most excited that I have seen her except for when she is helping me attend to the treatment of a child, is after she has attended a lecture or seminar in the area of Pediatric Dentistry, which she does with great frequency. She is also actively involved in volunteering events and seminars organized by Maricopa County Oral Health Leaders Advocates and Resources (MOLAR Coalition). As a member of the MOLAR Coalition, she has greatly enhanced her familiarity with on various aspects of oral health and is thus able to make important contributions a part of our dental community, especially with respect to outreach programs. XXXX is also actively involved in the support of dental camps organized by the Refugees and Immigrants Community for Empowerment (RICE), further demonstrating her passion and commitment towards her goals and towards the community. As her mentor, I have seen her grow professionally in leaps and bounds and could not be more certain that she will distinguish herself in your program.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions concerning XXXX’s application.
