Residency Personal Statement Sample, Masters Periodontics, Saudi Arabia

A dentist from Saudi Arabia, throughout the course of my training and professional experience, I have often been surprised at how many of the people in my country have less than even a basic grasp concerning the essentials of oral health care, even many of those who are quite wealthy and educated; they remain uninformed and continue to suffer the consequences. This has helped me to develop into a dentist who is especially conscious of and concerned with the imperative nature of public health education in the area of oral health care and prevention of disease. Being selected to a Residency and Master’s Program in Periodontics in the USA will help me enormously to realize my long-term goal of making major contributions to the advance of public oral health care as a priority in the KSA.

I could not be more devoted to the study and engaged with the practice of Periodontics. Currently practicing in our university periodontal clinic, I see patients with periodontal diseases every day, often Chronic Periodontitis with very deep pockets and bad oral hygiene. Thus, I have developed a keen sensitivity concerning the enormous work that needs to be done with respect to raising community awareness of our public oral health challenges. For some time, I have also been volunteering as much as I can to work with an oral health education team in public venues, providing free dental services, answering questions about available resources and opportunities, etc. I see a huge prevalence of periodontal disease at these camps, gingival recession and other dental abnormalities, most clearly a result of the simple lack of basic hygiene and preventive care.

At King Khalid University Dental Clinic, I observed the large numbers of people always in long lines and the huge numbers of people seeking periodontal and other surgical treatments, especially dental implants. Those patients seeking dental implants at our clinic had to first patiently wait for weeks if not months on the waiting list since we only had one periodontist in our clinic that was licensed to perform dental implants. Hence, my great passion for Periodontics – driven by the great need to which I have been a first-hand observer. This is why I have dedicated my professional life to the central cause of the advancement of Periodontics in Saudi Arabia.

I finished dental school in the KSA not far from the top of my class - 4.36 out of 5 – and, in addition to practicing Periodontics, I have also been teaching Periodontics to undergraduate students in periodontal clinics. Completing a highly-distinguished residency program such as yours and earning my Master’s Degree in Periodontics will enable me to become certified in the USA and subsequently earn the appointment of full professor in Saudi Arabia.

I look forward to many decades to come, serving at the cutting edge of Periodontology in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, curriculum development for periodontology courses in my university, for example, so as to bring our system up to a level that is as close as possible to the way that Periodontics is practiced in the USA. I see my future role as a bridge for Periodontics expertise and state-of-the art practice to flow from the USA to the KSA where it is so greatly needed, as there are very few well trained Periodontists. Most recently, our KKU Dental College has become a training center for the Saudi Board of Periodontology. I hope to be one of this program’s directors in the future.

Thankfully, my current, two-year position as a Teaching Assistant in the field of Periodontology at my university comes complete with a full scholarship for postgraduate study in the USA, making it comfortable for me to afford my career advancement. Most of my duties at my current post involve the supervision of dental students in periodontal course clinics. I am grateful to be gaining valuable experience in teaching and tutoring in periodontal procedures – especially scaling and root planning as well as practicing full time in this area. I also appreciate very much having the opportunity to interact with particularly outstanding professors in Periodontology such as with Dr. XXXX, one of my role models, who completed a residency program and earned a Master’s Degree in Periodontology in the USA. He has been inspiring and encouraging me to follow his example.

Following graduation, I served in the Ministry of Health Hospital as a Maxillofacial Intern for 2 months, doing mostly extractions in OR under the supervision of OMF surgeons. The rest of my internship was at King Khalid University Dental School clinics, gaining practice and in-depth exposure to other dentistry specialties. For years now, I have constantly attended  seminars and workshops.   

I spent much of 2016 in an intensive English Language Program at the University of Pennsylvania so as to bring my language skill up to the excellent level needed so to excel in your Periodontology program. At the same time, I also prepared and sat for Part 1 of the NBDE.

I thank you for considering my application.

Sample 1st 2 Paragraphs for Residency Position in Periodontology, Iranian

Several years ago, I made a firm decision to give my life to the study of periodontal diseases because I seek to take on the enemy in the most fundamental and sustainable way possible, fighting tooth decay at its base, the supporting bone structure. As a result of my profound passion to succeed professionally in research as well as practice, for the past 3 years, I have worked in the laboratory of Dr. XXXX at Western University, categorizing the molecular events that predict the biological behavior of head and neck tumor development and progression. At the same time, I have also learned a great deal about the challenges facing oral health education by serving as Vice President of our DMD Class of 2015.

I am a young Armenian-Persian woman from Iran who seeks to devote her life to research and development in Periodontology. I came to America 7 years ago and I am now a US citizen with a US education. I will be finishing my DDM Degree from Western University of Health Sciences next year, 2015, and I hope to begin a residency position as soon as possible. My graduate level studies are complemented by my undergraduate studies at UXXXX in Biomedical Engineering. Still only 28 years old, I am full of energy and passion and ready to give my all working long hours in order to excel in your program and prove myself to be an asset to our common advancement on the cutting edge of practice and research in Periodontology.
