Saudi Arabian Prosthodontist Personal Statement Sample for a Master's Degree/Residency Position

A very dedicated and hard-working dentist in Saudi Arabia, I am currently employed with our Ministry of Health. I also have experience as a dentist with the National Guard. I was awarded a prize as the “Best Intern Communicator” during my internship and also won second place in a research competition in my faculty of dentistry.

I hope very much to earn the Master’s Degree in Prosthodontics at XXXX because I want to study in London at a large university and I appreciate the international flavor of your program with a variety of internationally recognized prosthodontists on your faculty. I also very much appreciate the way in which your curriculum creatively integrates course work in the areas of implantology and fixed and removable prosthodontics. Finally, I appreciate the strong links that your program has with other restorative specialties. I have been to the UK, studying English there intensively for several months in 2014. I love it:  the multiculturalism, the architecture, weather and all of the very nice people that I got to know.

My country, Saudi Arabia, lags far behind the US and Western Europe to the extent to which we are able to provide a wide range of affordable prosthodontic services to our people. We have a long way to go to move up to the level of the West in terms of both quality and level of access. Thus, I am extremely inspired to earn my Master’s Degree at a world-class institution like XXXX so that I can contribute to the advancement of Prosthodontics in Saudi Arabia upon my return, passing on the torch to new generations of prosthodontists in my country at the same time that I dedicate the balance of my professional life to research into the best ways to confront and overcome the challenges that we face as a society in meeting the Prosthodontic needs of our people. Generally speaking, we simply have a shortage of prosthodontists in Saudi Arabia and I look forward to serving in an area of dentistry where the need is so pronounced. At the very least, many patients have no alternative but to travel long distances for prosthodontic care, which is especially difficult since many of them are advanced in years.

Since graduating from dental school, I have served in a variety of primary health care centers, attending to many patients in need of prosthodontic treatments, ranging from younger patients with psychological issues having to do with their smile to elderly patients that have lost their ability to eat properly. Many if not most of my patients traveled long distances, adding great strain to the process. Over the decades to come, I look forward to providing high levels of prosthodontic care that are increasingly accessible to those who need it.

A leader of my batch through 4 years of dental school, I feel strongly that I have a great deal of leadership potential to realize as an advocate for the advancement of the field of Prosthodontics in Saudi Arabia. Dental aesthetics has taken on increased importance in my country, especially since the advent of new, exciting materials that have come to replace gold, having a much more life-like appearance as well as contributing to the general oral health of the patient. We are working mightily in Saudi Arabia to stay up near the cutting-edge in implant dentistry.  I look forward to many decades to come of teaching and research as I hope to publish in journals in my field, always staying active with hands-on experience.

I hope to at some point serve as a faculty member in a Prosthodontics Department. Through active research and involvement in the extended dental professional community, I also hope to serve to the fullest measure as an academic leader in the advancement of Prosthodontics in the Middle East.  A firm believer in the importance of professional association and I have participated in many conferences of dental professionals in Saudi Arabia. I have also worked as a volunteer with public health programs designed to raise awareness about preventative health care and importance of good diet for healthy teeth.

I want to thank you for consideration of my application and I keenly look forward to meeting your academic community dedicated to the enhancement of Prosthodontics. I find enormous contentment in the privilege of laboring on behalf of the smile of my people. Even on a spiritual level, a beautiful smile is sublime communication and I show my pride in this field by working as diligently as I can to actively promote our commonly held, professional ideals.

Watch how we put braces on
