Personal Statement of Purpose for entering into a quality DDS/DMD Program with a qualified American University
Applicant name: Dr. ***** *****

It is little wonder that my feet were placed on the path to serving others through Dentistry. Growing up in [Southeast Asian country], my father owned a dental clinic, one I would visit every Friday after school. While we emigrated to the US in 19**, my ****** and ******, the Head Dentist, run a dental clinic in [Metropolitan City in Southeast Asian country]. Surrounded by people dedicated to delivering compassionate care, I was taught values and ideals for contributing to others’ lives. My understanding of the community Dentist’s role as healers and trusted role was solidified at a tender age. More importantly, I have seen that dedicated Dentists can impart confidence, self-esteem and even efficacy to patients.

For over a decade, I have maintained a conceptual continuity in my academic, professional and volunteer careers, an unswerving path to Biomedical Engineering and Dentistry. This is turn has given my raw talents, manual dexterity, analytical thinking coupled with compassion for others an outlet to help others. Earning my DDS will enable me to bring my lifelong dream of becoming an exceptional Dentist to fruition.

My academic, professional, even philanthropic ideals go beyond the clinical, expanding my base of knowledge and contributing to the future of Dental research. I envision opening a Dental clinic that is patient-friendly, and given the influx of diverse patients into our healthcare system, I feel that my own immigrant experiences make me particularly sensitive to their unique needs. Moreover, I want to continue an active research regimen, working from a university, bringing practical, contemporary research to burgeoning Dental professionals.
