Periodontology Residency Personal Statement Examples

Updated: Jan 31

Being accepted to your distinguished Residency Program in Periodontology will inspire and enable me to become a leader in my chosen field in my country, Saudi Arabia. Twenty-seven years old, I am a Saudi woman dentist who could not be more passionate about Periodontology, and I look forward to teaching here in the KSA as well as practicing in this area for many decades to come, honoring my profession through constant labor and research to advance our level of patient care in my country.

I seek to practice on the forefront of my field and become a model for others to follow in the Middle East through my mastery of surgical procedures associated with all facets of Periodontology. Accepting and completing a Residency Program in Periodontology in the USA will provide me with the professional foundation I need to teach Periodontology in Saudi Arabia to interns and new residents in Dentistry. Together, we will be able to significantly improve Saudi oral healthcare structures and practices for many years to come.

I look forward to a long and productive future where I give my all as a widely recognized and highly respected consultant in Periodontics in the KSA - on the forefront of my field as a Periodontist certified by the American Board of Periodontology. In particular, I look forward to filling leadership roles in dentistry at the King Fahad Armed Forces Hospital, where I currently serve. I want to return upon completing your program.

A swift learner, I am also highly motivated and could not be more committed to my profession and patient service. An accomplished and practiced team player, I live to learn anything and everything related to dentistry, especially Periodontology.

I have worked as a general dentist for almost three years in the King Fahad Armed Forces Hospital, treating many challenging cases under the supervision of our great consultants. My patients include medically compromised patients in our dental department, coordinating their medical doctors.

I am very much enthralled by and engaged with esthetic considerations in periodontology. I hope to distinguish myself in Implant Dentistry. At the same time, I devote my professional life to Periodontal Surgery, continuing to thrive on the constant, rapid advances being made in these fields. I hope to earn a master's degree and become board certified in Implantology and Periodontology. I also spend a lot of time with emerging, innovative research in immunity. 

As a volunteer ever since I was in high school, I have spent countless hours working for dozens of causes and non-profit organizations, including Orphan International Day, International World Health Day, World Without Tobacco, International Downs Syndrome Day, the Al-Jawhara AlIbrahim Center of Excellence in Hereditary Disorders, and at the Day Dental Examination and Treatment during visits of the mobile clinic. Before studying dentistry, I spent much of my vacation visiting hospitals and cheering up critically ill patients.

I feel strongly that I have the right combination of high energy and dedication to truly excel in Periodontics if allowed to prove myself in your competitive and rigorous program since I now have extensive experience as a general dentist working long hours under demanding circumstances, in addition to my internship year that introduced me to a broad diversity of hospital settings, patients, and challenging cases.

I thank you for considering my application to your program.
