2014 ADEA AADSAS PERSONAL STATEMENTThings that challenged my manual dexterity and hand eye coordination such as LEGOs thrilled me as a child and my love for challenges has led to my goal of becoming a dentist Every time I played with LEGO I felt as if my hands were glued to the pieces I could sit in my room for hours building skyscrapers castles and spaceships There was no greater feeling than that of having completed a piece of an art for particularly difficult ones As I grew up my love for LEGO made the transition to plastic model aircrafts which required tools more skills and better manual dexterity Unlike LEGOs making plastic model aircrafts was not finished with just assembling plastic pieces but required further steps such as trimming the pieces painting drying and applying decals There are some similarities in dental treatment and building a plastic model airplane As a person who has a cavity needs a filing by using composite it is necessary to fill in any gaps between parts using a putty filler material when assembling a plastic model aircraft Also one of the most demanding parts was applying tiny decals which were only a few millimeters long In order to apply them I had to cut them out perfectly and dip them in water for a few seconds until the decal separated slightly from the backing paper I finally had to slide the decal off the baking paper on to the model very carefully using forcepsBuilding plastic model aircrafts allowed me to achieve greater manual dexterity through countless hours of making them and as I have trained my hands to move carefully and precisely I am determined that I want to use them to help others Great manual dexterity is required to build a plastic model and this manual dexterity bears a direct correlation to dentistry When trying to undertake a new piece of model the initial excitement overwhelms me
