To Whom It May Concern,
My name is XXXX D.D.S., Ph.D. I am happy to write a Letter of Recommendation on behalf of XXXX, who is applying to advanced training programs in Periodontology in the USA. I serve as a Professor of Clinical Dentistry at National Taiwan University in Taipei and operate a private dental clinic. It is a great honor and pleasure to serve as Dr. XXXX’s mentor since he has greatly assisted our ongoing research in my periodontal lab at the Graduate Institute of Clinical Dentistry at National Taiwan University.
Dr. XXXX is one of the most rapid learners that I have ever had the opportunity to observe closely. He has distinguished himself, in particular, in animal experiments. I have watched him blossom before my eyes in bone regeneration, and I could not be more pleased with his writing for our research articles. We went together to the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) Conference in Vancouver this June 2019, where each of us presented a poster.
Dr. XXXX practices in a private clinic in Taoyuan that is a 2-hour drive from my lab. Nevertheless, he drove faithfully for months on end for our research several times a week and continues to do so at least once weekly. I know of no one more dedicated to and passionate about Periodontology, and his curiosity and devotion are contagious, serving to inspire his mentors and coworkers alike. His contribution to advancing my research is invaluable, and I could not be more pleased with how we have worked together successfully as a research team.
Dr. XXXX has been of instrumental importance to several ongoing research projects in my lab, beginning in 2017. Soon, he will also publish his scientific article entitled ‘Identification of Oral Biomarkers for Periodontitis and Periodontal Treatment’ in a prominent periodontal journal. Dr. XXXX is a diligent student eager to learn all he can, especially about Periodontics. He demonstrates careful attention to detail in his clinical practice, just as in our research endeavors. He works most harmoniously with my laboratory team and invariably follows instructions to the letter. I listened to his poster presentation this past June with deep admiration, reflecting on his remarkable potential, for decades to come, to make essential contributions to Periodontology. I could not be more convinced that the institution that selects him will be most fortunate to welcome him as a team member.
Please let me know if I can provide any further information.
