Question One (2)

´╗┐Question One: About the Middle East Community

I come from the Middle East community, a region that covers over five million square miles and is located northeast of Africa and Southwest of Asia. My place within the community is that of a dental practitioner. Although I am still a student, I have worked in a dental office before. I am set to enroll for a degree program in Dental Undergraduate The Middle East extends about 1,000 miles from the Mediterranean Sea in the west towards the mountains of Iran and 2,000 miles from the Black Sea towards the Arabian Sea in the South. Several countries comprise the Middle East and North Africa, including Bahrain, Algeria, Iran, Egypt, Israel, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, Syria, Yemen, and United Arab Emirates. The most widely spoken languages within the region are English, French, Arabian, Turkish, Persian, Kurdish, Berber, and French. Arabic, however, is the most spoken language in this region, being the official language of over 20 countries. Over 300 million individuals speak it across the world. The Middle East is sometimes referred to as the crossroads because it connects Africa, Asia, and Europe. Worth noting, the three largest religions globally, including Islam, Judaism, and Christianity, originate from the Middle East. However, most people in the Middle East are not Muslims; Muslims are mostly found in South Asia more than in North Africa and the Middle East. The most common foods that are known to be from the Middle East regions are kebabs, falafels, and hummus. While the three top the list of staple foods in the regions, the Middle East also boasts of diversity in cuisines originating from different cultures. They range from traditional, hearty meals with herbs, pungent spices, and light dishes refreshing even in their simplicity. According to recent studies, the monthly average salary in Arab countries is 1 202 dollars, with the Gulf countries being ranked first in the salaries list, making it attractive to expatriate workers. With regard to income, Ghawar and Safaniya fields are the largest oil fields in the world. Ghawar particularly has enabled Saudi Arabia to take the lead as the world’s largest oil producer. In the middle ages, scientists made great contributions to chemistry, medicine, algebra, optics, astronomy, and trigonometry.

Question Two: About Degree Program

I am interested in pursuing an Undergraduate Program in Dental Hygiene at the University of Michigan. What attracts me to this undergraduate course is the satisfaction that I will get in helping thousands of clients attain good oral health hygiene for overall well-being once I complete the studies and join employment. I am humanitarian at heart, and I love being the poison offering solutions to people’s health. What makes me unique is that I have experience working within a dental health setting before. I was working hand in hand with the dental hygienist. This experience was a learning opportunity for me because it provided me first-hand experience about how life in the dental health profession is. I hope that the knowledge gathered through educational training will equip me with the skills and tools necessary tools that I need to become a dental hygienist. Through the University of Michigan curriculum, I hope to gain hands-on experience from laboratory training and specialty clinics, which I will use to give back to society by treating patients. With the deteriorating quality of dental services comes the rising need to improve the situation. Because there is a rising demand for dental services, it would be my pleasure to go through this two-year program to prepare me to fill the gap in the oral hygiene field.
