I am from India, where I completed my Bachelor of Dental Science Degree. A highly dedicated dentistry professional, I especially look forward to doing research in the future in oral and maxillofacial surgery. My long-term professional goal is to have my own dental practice where I labor mightily each day to put a smile on the faces of my patients. This is where I attain my dignity, satisfaction, and pride. I also look forward to working extremely hard as a member of my community, engaging in volunteer activities that raise awareness concerning the importance of maintaining one’s oral health. I want to devote as much of my energy as possible to assisting low-income people to get appropriate dental care.
My extensive experience in dentistry began while I was in high school, shadowing my uncle who is a dentist. While in dental school, I worked under the supervision of one of my professors as an assistant dentist, completing a 1-year internship. After my graduation, I worked as a junior dentist in a private clinic in Hyderabad for 15 months. My experience as a volunteer includes working with the mentally disabled at the XXXX Institute as well as helping to conduct numerous dental camps in rural areas while still a student. I have also devoted countless hours to the Red Cross, both in India and here in the USA. I am currently working as a volunteer assistant at a blood donation center in XXXX, Mo.
My experiences have enabled me to learn to adapt myself to a broad variety of professional contexts and challenges. My pride is centered on my compassion and the confidence of the patient is what I most prize. I want very much to devote my life to the cause of promoting oral health awareness and working selflessly for the betterment of the members of my community. I want to be the kind of dentist who is very well connected with networks of like-minded professionals devoted to dental camps, missions, and other volunteer efforts.
As a student of dentistry in India, I cared for those patients who lived in some of the most poverty-stricken rings of misery surrounding Indian cities. Each day was an intense learning experience that helped me to grow enormously on a human level in response to the magnitude of the challenges. During my last two years of study, I had the opportunity to work in rural areas where levels of health awareness are especially low; I came across many people who did not even know what toothpaste was and had never seen a dentist even once in their entire lives.
Community service provides my life with its meaning. I thrive as a human being on the expression of love and compassion. Now, I want very much to prepare myself for practicing dentistry here in my new community. Since my arrival in the USA a little over a year ago, I have taken several online courses in preparation for returning to dental school here in America, as well as preparing for the NBDE. I was a recognized leader among my peers in dental school in India. This is why I was one of only a few students to later be appointed as a faculty member, in my case, in Oral Medicine & Radiology. Both before and after my graduation, I was heavily engaged in the organization of various programs, all devoted to raising the awareness of the importance of oral health and hygiene. I look forward to giving my all to your distinguished program so that I might continue to excel in my chosen field here in America.
I thank you for considering my application to your program.
