Aufstiegsfortbildungen am Pfaff-Institut

After completing their training as a dental nurse, graduates have a wide range of interesting opportunities for advancement and development. Which direction you choose depends primarily on your own strengths and interests, but can also be based on your practice needs. At the Philipp Pfaff Institute in Berlin, for example, dental hygienists have the opportunity to take one of the renowned advanced training courses to become a Dental Administrative Assistant (ZMV), Dental prophylaxis assistant (ZMP), Dental Hygienist (DH) or Specialist for dental practice management (FZP) to complete the course. As a rule, ZFAs decide whether they would like to deepen their knowledge in the area of practice management or continue their education to become a prophylaxis assistant or dental hygienist. For colleagues who are active as all-rounders in the practice and like to apply their skills and knowledge both in administration and in direct treatment in the field of prevention & prophylaxis, the additional qualification as a dental assistant (ZMF) can be acquired.

Example calculation for the course fee with funding via the Upgrading BAföG

The course and examination fees for the ZMV seminar amount to € 3,995. Ideally, a non-repayable grant of up to approx. 75 percent is possible via the new Upgrading BAföG! In this case, this corresponds to a total of € 2,996.75.

This results in a personal contribution of own contribution of € 998.75 (see example calculation opposite).

Sample calculation

3.995,00 €

– 1.997,50 €

(50 % subsidy share)

= 1.997,50 €

– 998,75 €

(50 % loan forgiveness if the examination is successful)

= 998,75 €
