Dentistry is for me an extremely rewarding profession. Anxious to arrive at the clinic each day, I find it hard to leave when it comes time to do so. I love the engagement, the service, being able to make such a significant contribution to the lives of so many. I get an enormous sense of satisfaction knowing that I make important contributions to the oral health of my community.
I could not be more dedicated to lifelong education in dentistry. I see having completed dental school at Poznan University in Poland in 2013 as only the beginning. Most of my internships and clinical experiences have been in London, so I am accustomed to practicing as an Associate Dentist on the cutting-edge in two different dental practices, one in the South East and the other in the North West of London - providing NHS as well as private dental services. Now, with sufficient experience, I feel strongly that it is the optimal time for me to complete a residency program in General Dentistry.
Since finishing dental school in Poland, I have been taking CPD classes and volunteering as much of my time as my circumstances allow, cultivating a special place in my heart for the underserved, who I hope to engage with increasingly as my career progresses. I also hope to be selected for your distinguished AEGD residency program at XXXX Medical Center, so as to fully maximize my career potential as a general dentist, attending to patients with complex as well as routine oral and dental issues. I regularly volunteer at charitable dental clinics in Delhi, India, my country of origin, providing dental care to the underprivileged. My goal in these clinics is always the same, to get better and better at what I do, and the experience has enabled me to become highly efficient at the same time that I always remain compassionate. I also try to regularly add something new to my clinical skillset.
The vast majority of patients that I have treated in London came to me through the NHS – thus, I had the privilege of treating a vast diversity of people, mostly routine dental treatment: the elderly, children, people from all economic backgrounds, including individuals from communities of scare resources that have rarely if ever seen a dentist. I thrive connecting with people of all ages and linguistic and ethnic backgrounds, continuing to refine my communication and interpersonal skills by caring for patients from such a diversity of backgrounds.
At this point of my career as a dentist, I realize that I still have much more to learn, especially if I am going to make my maximum contribution to the field. I am determined to deliver in General Dentistry and I hope very much to be selected to the AEGD Program at XXXX as a dentist who is ready to hit-the-ground running in your program and distinguish myself as a talented practitioner already skilled in many if not most dental procedures. I seek to acquire and master advanced multidisciplinary techniques and the management of complex cases.
I am particularly favorably impressed with the rigorous curriculum at XXXX and the accomplishments of your most distinguished and erudite faculty who have created a demanding yet nurturing learning environment. As a practicing dentist with strong interpersonal communication skills, I seek a well-rounded and an unparalleled, advanced education in general dentistry like the one provided by your program.
