Student of Professional Program in Dentistry , Faculty of Dental Medicine, Universitas Airlangga First, I didn’t really get into the field of dentistry. Nevertheless, by the time, I am getting more interested in this field. Moreover, I got a chance to study dentistry in Japan. From 2011 until 2015, I participated in International Dental Course, a program that give an opportunity for students to complete the undergraduate study in Hiroshima University, Japan. This program implements a dual linguistic concept, in which all the lectures are given in both English and Japanese. In the final year of my program, I conducted a scientific research about micro-RNA in the bone, as part of my final thesis. By joining that program, I have learnt a lot of knowledge in dentistry, especially in developed country like Japan. Furthermore, I also had a chance to meet many friends from different countries, expanding my networks, and also experience the Japanese cultures. I feel so lucky to join that program. At the moment, I am doing professional program in dentistry in Universitas Airlangga Dental Hospital. I hope I could gain my skill and implement my knowledge as a professional dentist in the future.
