Dental School Personal Statement Tips

Your dental school personal statement is by far the most important part of your applications package, far more important than your DAT scores or past grades. Your personal statement is your one and only opportunity to sell yourself to the selections committee, your only chance to show them something of your personality and your capabilities. The following sections will give you some tips on writing a personal statement for dental school which will help make your statement more memorable. Follow these tips for writing a personal statement and your statement should truly impress the reader.

Some Dental School Personal Statement Tips

Cover all of the areas that the dental school expects you to cover within your personal statement:

  • Why do you want to study dentistry?
  • What are your career goals?
  • What experience do you have? (Internship?)
  • What research have you done into dentistry?
  • Show your commitment to helping others.
  • Show skills that will benefit you as a dentist.

Cover all of these points thoroughly through the use of examples, show what you have done and are capable of doing rather than tell the reader.

More Personal Statement Tips

The opening lines are by far the most important part of your personal statement, it is through your opening that you get the attention of the reader and keep them on the page. If your opening fails to inspire your personal statement may not get read through.

This means you must avoid opening with a cliché “I want to be a dentist as I enjoy helping people”, you must also avoid stating the obvious “I want to attend your school of dentistry as I know that I will learn a lot.” You must also be precise with what you say; do not say “I learned a huge amount whilst helping at my local surgery.” What did you learn and how did you learn it?
