How I got into Dental Hygiene School (Accelerated Program)

Sample 1st Paragraph for the Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene

I was born in Somalia but raised in Memphis Tennessee. I am now 33 years old and have visited Somalia many times as both a child and an adult. One of the reasons why I want very much to become a dental hygiene professional is because every time that I have visited my country of origin, it breaks my heart to witness beautiful men and women held captive by their poor dental hygiene. I know that they would wish to smile openly without covering their mouths with their palms. I feel their tragedy very deeply and dream of returning to help Somalia develop structures of oral health care. My country is probably the last place anyone would want to visit, because of the violence and abysmal poverty. So we need to have confidence in our ability to smile.

I help dental hygienists and those seeking an advanced degree in Dental Hygiene from all over the world.

As someone who lives at the exact center of South America and has a long trajectory of working with human rights issues, my principal concern is the Developing World. Bolivia, in particular, where I live.  The FDI World Dental Federation has identified the most serious challenges facing developing countries such as Bolivia in South America, Africa, and Asia in their pursuit of optimal oral health. They include poor access to adequate care, lack of quality dental materials at an affordable price and insufficient investment in dental care.   The figures are stark: the average density of dentists to head of population in Africa is 1 to 150,000; in industrialized countries, the average is 1 to 5,000.  This is why I feel strongly that dental hygienists hold so much promise for the Developing World, especially in the long term, preventing the oral health decay for which treatment is simply unavailable, smart and sustainable.
