MS Masters, Prosthodontics, Kuwait, Ireland

I was born and raised in Kuwait and was a resident of Ireland for seven years. I was awarded a B.A. Degree and my Bachelor’s degree in Dentistry by Trinity College, Dublin, having been granted a study scholarship by the government of Kuwait. My goal now is to join a challenging program in Prosthodontics, during which I hope to be involved in valuable research and, eventually, to share the skills and knowledge gained with dentists in my home country.

 I was initially attracted to dentistry because there are various aspects in work; relief of pain, prevention, diagnosis, and esthetic. I was also attracted by the fact that dental and oral health is essential in maintaining general health. Initially, I did not consider the esthetic aspect of the work to be of particular importance. However, during my training and post-qualification experience, I became more and more aware of the enormous volume of a natural-looking, confident and attractive smile and to the distress of people who are forced to change their preferred diet because of dental problems. Another reason for my preference is that Prosthodontics is advancing at a thrilling pace. I expect to see many dramatic advances in my future career, and I am very keen to participate in researching, applying, and teaching them.

 I am currently in my third year of work in a polyclinic. I have been fortunate to see patients with a wide variety of treatment needs and thus acquired substantial experience over a relatively short period. I have experience in surgical and non-surgical extractions, fixed prosthodontics, endodontics, anterior and posterior composites, amalgam restoration, dental cleaning, and radiography. I have seen many patients in need of Prosthodontic work, both fixed and removable, in my training and work to date and have undertaken a significant amount of work in this area and have also liaised with specialists.  I have been highly impressed by the rigor of the specialists’ planning, the excellent care they apply in their work, and the beneficial outcomes achieved. I have also sought to acquire relevant skills and knowledge by attendance at workshops on the subjects of, for example, veneers and lumineers.

 I am particularly interested in working to assist those who have lost all or most of their teeth, especially the elderly. I saw my grandfather’s struggles and distress in dealing with new dentures, and I would love to be able to assist in research that would reduce and, ultimately, entirely prevent, these difficulties suffered by so many of the elderly.

 I have undertaken effective research to date, and I thoroughly enjoyed doing so. I believe that I have the characteristics of determination, diligence, and thoroughness required to excel in research work. I hope to contribute to the body of dental research and also to teach in a school of dentistry as I enjoy sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm with others.

 I understand that the specialty calls for specific characteristics, including an ability to relate particularly well to patients to gain their collaboration in deciding on appropriate solutions where choices exist. I believe that I possess the patience required to deal effectively with the elderly patients that I primarily seek to assist. I am also aware of the importance of recognizing non-verbal signals given by patients by health care providers of any kind.

 I am fully aware of the importance of cultural sensitivity and awareness, especially in healthcare provision. I have lived in two cultures and have happily studied, worked, and socialized with people from many cultural and social backgrounds. In addition to living in Kuwait, Ireland, and England, I have traveled extensively in Asia and in Eastern Europe. I am bi-lingual in Arabic and English.

 I know there will be many well-qualified applicants; however, I believe that I am an exceptional candidate and have the potential to excel within the program. I have, in a relatively short career, been exposed to a wide range of Prosthodontic cases and their treatment and in consultations with specialists relating to medicine. I also have proven skills in research and am keen to apply and extend these. Most importantly, I offer a real passion for Prosthodontics and a commitment to active and enthusiastic participation in the program.
