is a word of which we feel we have an intuitive understanding. From the
earliest years of our training we are told that it is important to uphold
professional standards. ‘Be professional’ is such a versatile ethical
imperative that it can give guidance in how we ought to act in almost all
aspects of our working lives. Professionalism is soon to become a quantified
measure of our fitness to continue practice. In nowadays the professionalism
is very important because the people developed their knowledge and as a dentist
we should treat our patients honestly and listen to them in empathetical way
and with full of kindness. The dentist with the good professionalism they
communicate with the patients better than others and the patients are feel very
comfortable and happy. And the dentist should discuss the treatment in detail and
step by step to let the patient know what’s the problem and to understand what
we will do in the next visits.


Before two weeks ago I went to a dental center in Kuwait.
To observe in Kuwait dental center, you should have an observation request
paper. Upon my visit I concentrated to see the meaning of the professionalism
and to understand it. In the observation I saw a doctor that he was good and excellent
because his information was up-to-date and he was using new materials such as
flowable composite, Spherical Supra-Nanocomposites, and new devices. The doctor
was so efficient because he knew the new material so well and he was treating the
patient in professional way and the patient left the clinic with big smile.


In the second day I saw some cases, one of them was a
doctor with bad professionalism because he was shouting on patient and he showed
disrespect to the patient. The infection control was so bad because he was
touching many things with the infected gloves and using his phone in front of
the patient and his knowledge was not very good and he wasn’t up-to-date. Also,
he was keeping the water bottle on the tray. In addition to that, he picked up
the gauge by contaminating gloves not the tweezers.   So, I learned
from this visit to treat patient kindly and treat him with full respect. And keeping
my information up-to-date.


The Third day was very exciting because I went to orthodontist
that he removed orthodontic brackets and the result was magnificent. The patient
started his treatment before two years. At that time the dentist drew a
treatment plan such treating caries and extractions and scaling to start orthodontic
treatment. The doctor showed me a picture for the patient mouth at that time
and it was a mess. I really like the treatment plan that the doctor drew, that
was in a professional way, and the way that he deals with patient because he
was very polite, kind, confident, and the smile always was on his face and the
clinic was very tidy and very organized in a professional way. So, the communication
between the dentist and the patient is very important in professionalism to
facilitate the treatment procedure and make it easy and organized. The dentist must
be patient, respectful, courteous and truthful. As a conclusion I learned from
this experience so much about professionalism and dealing with patients in a
proper way. As a dentist we should respect our stature, rules and principles. And
the experiment was so exciting and helpful to me as I learned many important modern
issues in dentistry.
