Sample 1st Paragraph DDS Applicant from India

As I reflect on my dedication to dentistry, I am reminded of a famous quote by Rabindranath Tagore: “I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I woke and saw that life was duty. I acted and behold: duty was joy.”  This is why I am a young Indian man who eats, sleeps, and breathes dentistry. Nothing brings me as much joy as healing, particularly protecting the most vulnerable among us who have no access to oral health care.

Sample 1st 2 Paragraphs for Dental Residency Position, International Dentist from Pakistan

One of the things that I love most about my profession as a dentist from Pakistan is the way in which our field is so global, with more advanced countries making huge efforts so provide for those that are less fortunate in terms of their ability to provide adequate dental care for their people. My country, Pakistan, where I was born and raised and educated as a dentist, represents a host of special problems for those dentists and other health care workers in the international community who would like to help us. Many do come to help with the emergency health needs of victims of our massive flooding that take place periodically. The acute political instability of Pakistan, however, and the massive violence that this breeds—especially in certain areas of the country--tends to scare off all but a handful of the most brave.

The primary hope that I have for being selected to your program, with so many other qualified candidates applying, is the fact that I am uniquely qualified to serve women in desperate need of dental care in the future who are some of the most acutely underserved people in the world. I am still only 26 years old and have been in the USA now for more than a year preparing myself for your program primarily by perfecting my English. In the future, however, I feel strongly compelled to personally attend to the oral health care needs of women in Pakistan’s tribal areas, the vast majority of whom have no dental care at all; there are few dentists to begin with and they are not allowed to see male doctors or dentists for cultural and religious reasons. Unfortunately there are far fewer women dentists than male dentists, virtually non-existent. I feel their pain and I also feel strongly that I have the courage and the nerve to help them in the future, based on the professional growth and the intellectual and moral support of the wonderful people who I look forward to meeting in your program.

Sample 1st Paragraph

Now 27, I am a Chinese woman who has made Canada my home since we immigrated here in 2001. Already a teenager when I arrived, I was able to fully retain my language skills in Chinese; yet, I came soon enough to learn to speak English with only a minimal accent. Currently entering the home stretch in my studies towards the DDS Degree, it is a great pleasure to be in search of my first position as a dentist and I hope to begin my career by first gaining experience in the United States, preferably in your distinguished program at XXXX. As someone who relishes diversity and multiculturalism, I hope to excel in your program as an Asian woman, a Canadian, and most of all as a dentist who never loses her focus on her constant quest for increased capacity and excellence of service as an oral health professional.
