Successful Personal Statements in the Area of Implantology

The Advance of Implantology

Over the course of the last few years, I have noticed increasing interest in the area of Implantology with exciting new fellowship positions being created. 

We are living through most exciting times in dentistry and oral health care to a great extent because of the advent of dental implants. While Dental implants have been utilized by mankind for thousands of years, it is only recently that they have achieved widespread acceptance from the profession at large.

This has resulted in extensive academic investigations and scientific testing which was brought to the fore by the ground-breaking work of Professor Branemark and Andre Schroder. Implants have become more and more mainstream since the Toronto meeting in 1983 when Professor Branemark released his extensive research findings to specialist dentists. Since that time there has been a rapid growth in the use of dental implants in all areas of the world.

We have now reached the point where, in many situations, dental implants are the first choice restorative tool for the replacement of a missing tooth or teeth. They provide predictable and aesthetic long-term solutions for an increasing number of patients around the world. Worldwide professional view of implants Dental implants are used in many countries world-wide to facilitate dental rehabilitation. If one consults the research literature, one can find articles from dental schools and universities from nearly all countries around the world.

This breadth of research on different designs of implants and manufacturers of implants has increased our knowledge base, not only about specific implants but also about different types of treatment.

Climbing Mountains and Serving Orphans in Africa

Dr. Abbas Fazel instructs and supervises 3rd and 4th year students at A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health´s operative clinic. He is also on the dental school admissions committee and interviews applicants for the dental program.

In 2011, Abbas was invited to join the Board of K2 Adventures Foundation, a non-profit 501 (3) c organization. Its mission is to provide support and medical assistance to children and families with disabilities. They have established a medical/dental center at the Mwereni Integrated School and Orphanage in a town called Moshi, Tanzania.

Most of the children at the orphanage are either blind, albino or have the genetic skin disorder xeroderma pigmentosum. They are also either orphans or were recently abandoned by their parents.

The organization provides medical and dental services to these children, and works to improve their living conditions with new mattresses, blankets, sheets, mosquito nets, etc.

The foundation also helps provide them with clothes, educational and recreational materials and supplies, and protection from outside threats.

During an interview with Howard Farran on dentaltown.com, Farran explained how he had just returned from a trip when he climbed and reached the summit of Mt. Kiillimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa and the tallest free-standing mountain on the planet, thanks to Dr. Fazel, who is from Tanzania. During the interview, Howard Farran notes:

“…you get off the airplane and you go into a village that basically doesn’t have running water or electricity or sewage. The Earth has 7 billion people in 220 countries and 20 countries look like us – 200 don’t and 3 billion earthlings live on $3.00 a day. You just sit there and (have) a spiritual awakening where your stress just decompresses and you realize the meaning of life is humans helping humans.”

Howard says that many dentists have humanitarian dentistry on their bucket lists, but many don´t know how to, or have the time to go on a mission. Dental town has a whole forum dedicated to humanitarian missions. Register and to the forum to find out how implantologists can get involved.

The Importance of Specialized Training for Implantologist

To do great humanitarian work, the highest level of training you can acquire will serve you well.

Meet Dr. Irfan Qureshi, one of the most renowned and respected Implantologists in Pakistan. Dr. Qureshi is a graduate of Baqai Medical University, Karachi and King’s College, London, where he completed his master´s degree in Prosthodontics. He has a Certification in Clinical Implantology, which he gained in the UK, and is the first Diplomat of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) from Pakistan.

He has spoken at almost every recent event in Pakistan and has also lectured at prestigious events in UAE, South Korea and Germany. Dr. Qureshi explained how the Clinical Masters’ changed the course of his professional career in a recent interview.

“…King`s College London is considered to have the best dental school in all of Europe. I considered the US schools as well, and looking back, perhaps I would have enjoyed quality learning in the US too at a lower cost. However, as clichéd as it may sound, I wanted to come back to Pakistan and teach youngsters and motivate them. Seeing that our PMDC and institutions seem to follow the UK system more than the US, I opted to go to the UK for my Master`s.

Dr. Qureshi also talked about how fear can get in the way of moving ahead in our lives and the benefits of progress.

“You know I believe fear is your best friend and your worst enemy at the same time. Of course I had my fears, will I get in? What if I don’t pass? Will I be accepted by colleagues? How will I live as a poor student in an expensive place like London? But if you can use your fear to your advantage rather than letting it consume you, all else falls into place.

“Going to a place like London, living as a student, and roughing it out was a humbling experience, getting up early, cooking, cleaning, running to catch the bus and then working all day in the clinics in classes and the labs, doing it day in and day out toughens you up. It opens your eyes to research, to progress, to modern ways of learning and ultimately there is that subtle change that makes its way inside you, the confident body language, and the self-assurance of knowing that you are finally a trained expert is hugely gratifying.
