Advanced training as a dental hygienist (DH)

Photo: proDente e. V.

After some time (at least 1 year of professional experience), particularly committed and motivated dental hygienists take on a new professional challenge and strive for an even higher professional qualification as a dental hygienist. The tasks of a DH include non-surgical periodontal therapy, i.e. the treatment of the “widespread disease” periodontitis.

Within this framework, the dental hygienist’s field of activity includes patient education, diagnosis, therapy and aftercare of the sick patient. This is done within the legally permissible framework after delegation and under the supervision and responsibility of the dentist.

Upgrading BAföG

The upgrading training courses at the Philipp Pfaff Institute can be funded via the Upgrading Training Assistance Act (Aufstiegs-BAföG).

The funding of upgrading training courses under the Upgrading Training Assistance Act (AFBG), the so-called “Aufstiegs-BAföG”, has recently required the provider of the measure to apply a quality assurance system.

This criterion is fully met with the ISO certification of the Philipp Pfaff Institute, so that all eligible course participants have the opportunity to apply for Aufstiegs-BAföG for upgrading training at the Philipp Pfaff Institute.

You can find more information on the Aufstiegs-BAföG at https://www.aufstiegs-bafoeg.de.
