Dear Dr. Raffaella & Devinder,
I write to you in regard to my recent work experience at the White Dental Rooms Clinic.
I would like to start of by thanking you both very much for allowing me to have a fantastic insight into a dental career from a different perspective. Yesterday’s work experience sure has confirmed my determination to peruse a career in Dentistry. After immediately walking through the door, I felt very welcomed into the practice, but also the first impressions showed that the practice seemed very different to any I had previously visited, and being my first work experience in an 100% private clinic has given me the best insight. Both Devinder and Dr Raffaela were very helpful throughout the experience, being very open and answering all my questions I had, without me even asking them.
Having already done work experience in an NHS dental practice, the difference was immediately clear after walking into the practice yesterday, the atmosphere was what I think every practice should be like.
I admire Dr Raffaella’s vocation for Dentistry and after sharing your experience in Sierra Leone and after further reading yesterday on your work as part of Smiling World Foundation, I see you as an inspiration as this is exactly what I would like to persue in the future and would love to volunteer as part of Smiling Foundation in helping to defeat oral disease globally.
As you may know that during University selection, the interview is the main selection criteria and feel that yesterday’s experience will help me pass this section successfully, as I feel that gaining a full insight into not only the depths of the practice but also the breath were very unique to your practice which I feel any other practice would not have offered.
Your interaction with patient goes to prove your successes over the years, and now know where to send family and friends for dental check ups!
Once again I would like to say thank you to all the team at White Dental Room Clinic, and for giving me the warmest of welcomes into your practice.
