    It's a statement of intent. What do you want to do and why? Try to keep it to one page or less.

    Grant it, a page is not much to work with, but ultimately you want to convey your rationale for for choosing ortho over other specialties or general dentistry, IMO. Just putting myself in a PD's shoes, I would more interested in interviewing someone who did his/her due diligence and researched the field (externships {more-so for other specialties}, assisting/treating in the ortho clinic, checking out private practices, maybe doing some ortho research). Expand as much as you can on these experiences to get a simple message across, "I know, without a doubt, that ortho is what I want to do." Just my thoughts and good luck to you...
