DDS, International Dentist, Radiology, OMS, India

I am from India, where I completed my Bachelor of Dental Sciences Degree. A highly-dedicated dentistry professional, I especially look forward to doing research in the future in the area of oral and maxillofacial surgery. My long-term professional goal is to have my own dental practice where I labor mightily each day to put a smile on the faces of my patients. This is where I attain my dignity, satisfaction, and pride. I also look forward to working very hard as a member of my community, engaging in volunteer activities that raise awareness concerning the importance of maintaining one’s oral health. In particular, I want to devote as much of my energy as possible to assisting low-income people in getting appropriate dental care.

My extensive experience in dentistry began while I was in high school, shadowing my uncle who is a dentist. While in dental school, I worked under the supervision of one of my professors as an assistant dentist, completing a 1-year internship. After my graduation, I worked as a junior dentist in a private clinic in Hyderabad for 15 months. My experience as a volunteer includes working with the mentally disabled at the Thakur Hari Prasad Institute as well as helping to conduct numerous dental camps in rural areas while still a student. I have also devoted countless hours to the Red Cross, both in India and here in the USA. I work as a volunteer assistant at a blood donation center in St. Peters, Mo.

My experiences have enabled me to learn to adapt myself to a wide variety of professional contexts and challenges. My pride is centered on my compassion, and the patient's confidence is what I most prize. I want very much to devote my life to the cause of promoting oral health awareness and working selflessly for the betterment of the members of my community. I want to be the kind of dentist who is very well connected with networks of like-minded professionals devoted to dental camps, missions, and other volunteer efforts.

As a dentistry student in India, I cared for those patients who lived in some of the most poverty-stricken rings of misery surrounding Indian cities. Each day was an intense learning experience that helped me to grow enormously on a human level in response to the magnitude of the challenges. During my last two years of study, I had the opportunity to work in rural areas where levels of health awareness are deficient;  I came across many people who did not even know what toothpaste was and had never seen a dentist even once in their entire lives.

Community service provides my life with its meaning. I thrive as a human being on the expression of love and compassion. Now, I want very much to prepare myself for practicing dentistry here in my new community. Since I arrived in the USA a little over a year ago, I have taken several online courses in preparation for returning to dental school here in America, as well as preparing for the NBDE. I was a recognized leader among my peers in dental school in India. This is why I was one of only a few students to be later appointed as a faculty member, in my case, in the area of Oral Medicine & Radiology. Before and after my graduation, I was heavily engaged in the organization of various programs, all devoted to raising the awareness of the importance of oral health and hygiene. I look forward to giving my all to your distinguished program so that I might continue to excel in my chosen field here in America.

I thank you for considering my application to your program.
