MS Oral Sciences, Public Oral Health, Clinical Dentistry

Updated: Apr 14

The MS Program in Oral Sciences at XXXX University is my first choice for additional advanced study in my field, Dentistry. I have profound respect for the long and distinguished history of your program, the impressive trajectories of your graduates, bolstering my conviction that no other program in the USA offers such a thoroughgoing and exhaustive foundation for the application of interdisciplinary perspectives in oral biology to the practice of clinical dentistry.

I see myself as the best fit with your program because I have laboratory experience and I want very much to become a leading oral biologist and a community leader working for the advancement of public oral health. Deeply involved in progressive movements dedicated to improving oral health care through advancement in our laboratories and research initiatives, I keep a vigilant eye on the most important issues of our day in oral health. I am also especially drawn to the program at Buffalo because of my long-term interest in bone regeneration, having particular admiration for related research by Drs. Ernesto DeNardin and Rosemary Dziak. As a long-term career goal, I wish to someday teach at the college or university level and give my all to academic research.

I have wanted to become an oral surgeon since the age of nine, reflecting on the rest of my life as I lay around recovering from getting kicked in the mouth playing football. My oral surgeon was the closest that I came to getting to meet a real- life hero. To me, he loomed very large almost like a super hero and I was smitten with the heroic nature of what he accomplished. From that time forward, almost involuntarily as if it were my destiny, I have struggled to become the finest dentist that I possibly can. I was accepted into one of the best dental schools in Northern India and my journey in to this beautiful world of dentistry began. During my clinical posting in the department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, I got an opportunity to closely observe patients who were receiving dental implants and I became especially fascinated with the biomechanical and biological aspects that contribute to the successful adaptation of implants to the area of alveolar process.

During my internship following my graduation from dental school in India, I was given the opportunity to present a poster on salivary pacemakers and the concept of neuroelectric stimulation of salivary glands to promote secretion – of great potential benefit to xerostomatic patients. While working on the poster, I studied many of the fundamentals of anatomy, physiology and the functioning of salivary glands and their secretions - and this will help me to hit the ground running at Buffalo. The more that I learn about oral sciences, the more I realize how much I love learning, feeding an addiction that I intend to assiduously cultivate for the rest of my life.

I thank you for considering my application to the MS in Oral Sciences at XXXX.
