Case Summary:

An endodontic resident from China hired NAILG (North America Immigration Law Group) to represent her EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) case. Her comprehensive petition letter was composed of detailed descriptions of her work that focuses specifically on the application of radiological techniques in the field of dentistry. We also noted that her research resulted in 6 scientific articles published in leading journals and that she had a citation record of 46 at the time of filing.

One of our client’s studies looks at the root and canal morphology within different ethnicities with varying anatomy of teeth. Regarding this important study, an influential researcher in the field of dentistry (whose recommendation letter we incorporated into our client’s petition packet) had this to say: “[Client] took it upon herself to study the varying morphologies of 5 different ethnic groups, and thereby provided the dental community with important information.”

Treatment of dental caries is a huge a burden on the American healthcare system, and our goal was to prove that our client’s research focuses on cost effective methods for dental care and serves the national interest by improving clinical treatment strategies. Furthermore, we persuaded the USCIS that our client is one of only a scant handful of researchers in the field whose research has both substantial merit and national importance under the new AAO decision— Matter of Dhanasar.

Although our client had to wait for a year for her NIW petition to be approved (it usually takes the USCIS between 4-9 months to process I-140 cases), we are nevertheless pleased that she has overcome this significant hurdle in the green card process. We thank her for trusting us to provide her with legal support, and we wish her the best in her future undertakings.
