Excellence in Dental School Admission Application Personal Statements

I turned my PHD in World Religions (University of Southern California, 1995) into a celebration of diversity in dental school admissions, especially for applicants born in the Developing World who look forward to returning to their countries of origin to help with the great need that exists for new initiatives in oral health care for the masses of ordinary people, many if not most of whom have never seen a dentist. I do this because I see Jesus in the faces of poor children without adequate health care. Since finishing my own doctoral studies almost 20 years ago in religion, ethics, and liberation, I have dedicated my professional life to the study of what makes the Personal Statement or Statement of Purpose most effective, with special attention to dental school.

Many of my clients have written to me to let me know that they had been accepted and to thank me for helping with their Personal Statements or admission essays. I believe that my work often results in acceptance because I draft/edit statements that contain the requisite elements of community spirit and personal character, on the one hand, and the celebration of diversity on the other. This serves to provide a slight edge to many successful applicants, helping them to stand out slightly above their closest competition.

The anonymous examples posted on my site are several years old. They are the personal statements of people originally from all over the world, in keeping with the international spirit of Dental School. When faced with many times the number of applicants for a limited number of positions, and applicants having more-or-less similar grades and examination scores, the Personal Statement is the only basis upon which to base the decision of who will be accepted and whose application will be rejected. 

I attend to my clients, generally speaking, in the order in which I have received their payments.‚Äč

All of the Statement samples on this web site were written more than 2 years ago and all are anonymous.

A creative writer and statement specialist with more than a quarter century of experience, I come from a long background of academic and professional training and volunteer work in the advancement of human rights, especially in the Developing World. I take special delight in human liberation, progressive communication, religion and spirituality, and constructive ways to make the world a more egalitarian and harmonious place to live, particularly through the advancement of environmentally friendly technology and sound business practices. 

Helping you is my social service.

Most of my clients are people for whom English is a second language. Almost all are multilingual and many have extensive experience from outside the United States. Some are already dentists who have completed their training and already practiced dentistry in their country of origin; and now they are applying to Advanced Placement Programs leading to the DDS degree in America, Canada, England and Australia. Most of my clients also share an interest in serving the desperate need for extensive new initiatives in oral health care geared towards meeting the needs of societies’ most vulnerable sectors in the Developing World.

I am convinced that one’s ethnicity, language skills, and multicultural experiences need to be woven together in a most eloquent fashion in your Personal Statement, as interconnected themes that radiate throughout your admission essay. Your ethnic or racial background and international aptitudes are your greatest assets as an applicant, and they need to be carefully related to both your short and long term goals. I do everything that I can to make your personal statement to dental school as effective as possible. After a careful review of your material, I often ask you highly specific questions born from my many years of experience writing dental statements. I am a seasoned expert concerning what is important to include, and what is not. I have also had a great deal of practice at condensing a lot of material onto two to three double-spaced pages (we like to think of it as brain surgery).

Often, in both the questions that I write for you as well as the statement itself, I contribute creative ideas that help to make your case for admission much more powerful. Dental school is extremely competitive. It is not enough to suggest that you are hoping to contribute to the diversity of the program; you must demonstrate in especially creative ways how your own unique combination of high motivation and multicultural background makes you uniquely suited to dentistry and that you have enormous potential for meeting the oral health care needs of the planet’s underserved populations.
