To Whom It May Concern,
My name is XXXX D.D.S., Ph.D. and I am very pleased 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 I also operate a private dental clinic. It is a great honor and pleasure to serve as Dr. XXXX’s mentor since he has been of great assistance to 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 closely observe, and he has distinguished himself, in particular, in the area of animal experiments. I have observed him blossom before my eyes in the area of 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 several times a week for months on end for the purposes of our research and he continues to do so at least once a week or so. I know of no one who is more dedicated to and passionate about Periodontology and his curiosity and devotion is contagious, serving to inspire his mentors and coworkers alike. His contribution to the advance of my own research is invaluable and I could not be more pleased with the way that we have worked together so 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 be publishing his own scientific article entitled ‘Identification of Oral Biomarkers for Periodontitis and Periodontal Treatment’ in a prominent periodontal journal. Dr. XXXX is a diligent student who is extremely eager to learn all that he can, especially about Periodontics. He demonstrates careful attention to detail in his clinical practice just as he does 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 great potential, for decades to come, to make important contributions to Periodontology. I could not be more convinced that the institution that selects him will be most fortunate to welcome him as a member of their team.
Please let me know if I can provide any further information.
