Pediatric Dentistry Residency Program, Saudi Applicant

Updated: Apr 14

Born, raised, and educated in Riyadh, I am a Saudi woman dentist currently enrolled in the Advanced Program in Comprehensive Dentistry at XXXXUniversity. It is my sincere hope to be accepted to a Pediatric Dentistry Residency Program so as to achieve some of the finest advanced training in my chosen field available anywhere in the world. Prior to my program at XXU, I was in an intensive English program for approximately a year, living in Chicago and studying with Kaplan, so that I am confident that I will be able to hit the ground running in your program, high energy, giving my all 24-7 - especially to the little patients that are my sheer joy. I have volunteered as a dental assistant in Chicago at a community health clinic, helping me to get a feel for how dentistry is practiced in America, as well as passing the first part of my board examinations, preparing for excellence in an advanced training program in Pediatric Dentistry.

Always disciplined, and highly motivated, I graduated from one of the finest dental schools in Saudi Arabia. I hope to be accepted to the Advanced Education in Pediatric Dentistry Program at XXXX University because of my very high degree of motivation, I crave the rigor as well as the prestige and stellar reputation of your program. I am determined to acquire the knowledge and clinical skills that I must have to become the very finest pediatric dentist possible. I think my achievements and preparation so far will propel me forward to distinguish myself for excellence in your program as I am assured that I would be among those students who try the hardest to excel.

I developed a great passion for pediatric dentistry at a tender age, when I got to know our family dentist, a very warm person that made my dental visits truly enjoyable. He treated me with great care and I always looked forward to the next visit; he inspired me and sparked my very keen, lifetime engagement with Dentistry. My intensifying focus on Pediatric Dentistry was fed by my growing affection for and engagement with children and the opportunity to make important, sustainable improvements that will last a lifetime. Children also take center stage in my focus on preventive dentistry and dental education, inspiring children and their parents to adopt healthy lifestyles. It pains me greatly to imagine how many children suffer throughout their lives as a result of not receiving adequate dental care in their childhood and adolescence. I have sought out additional experience for some time now with special needs children, in particular, and I am hoping for additional, extensive exposure to this most special of populations if selected for your program at Tufts. Nothing excites me as much as this prospect, long hours on my feet giving my all doing all that I can for as many as I can, little ones from a huge diversity of backgrounds with an equally broad spectrum of oral health issues.

I was a diligent student an no one worked harder or was more dedicated to her studies in dental school, enabling me to maintain a grade point average of 3.7/4.0, near the top of my class. I always worked extra hard to develop and perfect the skills that I see as especially important for working directly with patients, empathy, patience, and a sincere and genuine concern for their well-being. After finishing dental school in Saudi Arabia, I completed a one-year general dentistry internship program, 4 months of which I was able to spend in the Pediatric Department working with exclusively with children every day, which very much reaffirmed my conviction that I had found my calling, Pediatric Dentistry.

Volunteer work is especially close to my heart and I have participated in and usually helped to organize a variety of health awareness campaigns and dental workshops over the years, continuing to volunteer here in America as a dental assistant at a Community Health Center in Chicago, IL. I am convinced that these experiences have fired up my devotion and my self-confidence so that I will be able to distinguish myself in your program.

Receiving my thoroughgoing, advanced training at XXXX University will ensure that I will be able to make my highest mark and achievement in Pediatric Dentistry, my finest contribution. I will become not only a fully qualified Pediatric Dentist, but a distinguished leader in my field and a role model to other Saudi women who are willing to give themselves in this way to their career, making it the number one priority in their lives. I could not be more excited about the prospect of enrolling in a prestigious Pediatric Dentistry program in the nation that leads the world on the cutting edge of our field, the USA. Being selected for and completing your program will prepare me for my maximum career advancement in Saudi Arabia, giving my finest for the balance of my life to advancing the practice of Pediatric Dentistry.

I thank you for considering my application.
