Prophylaxe Zentrum Zürich

Dental hygienists perform preventive measures to protect teeth from dental decay, gum infection and periodontitis. Inflammatory symptoms will lead to further evaluation and will result in a successful treatment of a beginning disease. The profession of qualified dental hygienists (HF) belongs to the division of preventive medical professions. Prophylaxe Zentrum Zürich educates young dental hygienists based on strong practical relevance. The professional training is characterized by process orientated and practical education for small learning groups of max. 10 students. As well the theoretical, practical and clinical education is provided by dental hygienist instructors, lecturers and dentists with long-term professional experience, specialised knowledge and proven pedagogical experience.

A special feature of Prophylaxe Zentrum Zürich is the close interdisciplinary cooperation with our competence centre “Zahnmedizin Zürich Nord”. Students can therefore put their theoretical knowledge into practice at the same location.

Prophylaxe Zentrum Zürich is a private, self-feeding six-semester course of education in accordance to the rules of the federal office of professional education and technology. The graduates of this program receive a state approved diploma. Please find more information about the professional education of our students and the provided services for patients by visiting the official website of Prophylaxe Zentrum Zürich or checking our broschure.
