Since 2010, I have been serving in government community health center (PUSKESMAS) Galang, Batam, Riau Islands. PUSKESMAS Galang working area covers about 100 islands, of which only 35 islands are inhabited. Together with the health team, I have been moving from one island to another, every day until now. Even though the areas were so remote that we need a small boat to sail across the oceans, I enjoyed every second of it.

I chose the Specialist Program of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Universitas Airlangga for next destination of my post graduate study journey. Learning the Indonesian language is one of the main ways that help me to be more active in my study and help me to communicate very well with the people around me. Since I started my study here on December 2014, I had a lot of experience, doing minor and major in oral and maxillofacial surgery, helping the preparation and attending a lot of public charity programs held by my Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, such as cleft lip and palate charity program. Here, I learn to be more responsible and being always ready. The campus atmosphere is very friendly and my experience is incredible, because I meet friends for life who make me easy to adapt smoothly and help in my study process. The lectures treat me as their son because they want me to be a success Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon. I hope my all of these process help me to get my future. International Dental Course Student’s testimonial. Nadiah Kinanthi, BDS. 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.
