Professional statement

Dr Kenneth Ho was born in Manhattan, and raised in Staten Island. The son of hard working, Chinese immigrants, Kenneth studied intensely as a child to achieve a high score on his first and only Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT). His score allowed him to choose among Stuyvesant HS, Brooklyn Tech, and Bronx HS of Science. After attending Stuyvesant High School for 4 years, he went to college. In college, he majored in Biology and had several minors. His minors include Speech Communications and Theatre Arts, Psychology, and Chemistry. While in college, he tutored others in mathematics and english as a second language. He was also Vice President of the Chinese Club and Co-President of the Computer Club. To help manage the costs of college, Kenneth worked as a computer consultant, assisting and guiding other students (and some professors) in how to fully and properly use computers. While in college, Kenneth took the Dental School Admissions Test (DAT) once. After scoring in the top 8% of the country on the DAT, he applied for and was admitted into Stonybrook University School of Dental Medicine on his first attempt. Midway through dental school, Kenneth embarked on a very ambitious plan. He wanted to be a teacher and a dentist. In January 2002, he applied to become a part time teacher with Princeton Review (PR). Princeton Review is a nationwide organization that educates students of all ages, primarily teenagers who study to enter the best colleges possible. After scoring well on the PR placement exam and making the final cut to become a teacher, Kenneth Ho began teaching PR SAT classes. Parents and students who attended his classes remarked that he was a good teacher who could communicate new lessons and techniques in an effective, memorable manner. After receiving positive feedback from students, PR asked him to also become a personal, one-on-one SAT (college entrance examination) tutor. To this day, Dr Ho still remains active with Princeton Review. He is a dentist during the day, and a teacher to high school students at night. As of 2015, Dr Ho has been tutoring and teaching other students for almost 13 years. Kenneth Ho graduated from Stonybrook Dental School in May of 2004 with a Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree. He applied, was accepted, and graduated from Brookdale Hospital Dental Residency Program. In this residency program, Dr Ho extracted many difficult wisdom teeth, making him one of the best overall extraction dentists on staff capable of minor surgery. Some patients remarked that they didn't feel much pain when he pulled out their teeth. While Dr Ho is proficient in gently removing teeth, he is also very good with children. Many young patients who have not seen a dentist before are scared when they enter a dental office. Dr Ho recognizes this fear, spends time trying to comfort the child, and strives to be as considerate and gentle as possible when caring for his patients. Dr Ho has been working at Jane Yang Dental as a dentist since January 2008. After Dr Yang, the original founder and first dentist, Dr Ho is the longest serving dentist at Jane Yang Dental. Dr Ho's goal is to always be considerate, courteous, and professional with patients of every age and every anxiety level. Many patients he has cared for comment that Dr Ho is gentle and knowledgable.

Dr. Ho and his assistants were so friendly. When my husbasnd and I walked in we were greeted with a pleasant smile from the dental receptionist. We filled out a couple of documents and then in no time at all wewent in to do our x-rays. Ddhortyly after, Dr. Ho came in and explained my x-ray and suggested the best solution. He has a passion for his profession and it was displayed throughout our appointments. I highly recommend Dr. Ho for his excellent service!
