Every smile
has a story.

Every smile is as unique as the story behind it. When patients ask us to restore or improve a smile, we pride ourselves in the level of individualised care we provide. Our ethos is never compromise on either the quality of materials or the time required to offer great service. It is your trust that has given us our good reputation.

An outstanding reputation for excellence

Mark and Susanna Diacono opened the unit in 1999 within St James Hospital in Sliema — ranked amongst the top private healthcare organisations on the Maltese Island. By maintaining our patient focused approach, we have grown into a team of 10 experienced dentists and specialists supported by qualified auxiliary staff.

COVID and the clinic

We have taken Covid-19 seriously. Following a period of research, we implemented a series of changes to many aspects of the clinic itself as well as working techniques. The air systems have been fully overhauled, our fresh air supply and distribution has been upgraded and certified by independent assessors, and now significantly surpasses guidelines. Besides air circulation, we altered our personal protective equipment (PPE's), our appointment timing to allow better cleaning between patients and increased our staff training on the topic. Furthermore, we sanitise the air and surfaces by fogging the clinic three times daily with a safe and extremely effective agent.

Advanced equipment

The unit is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment; seven dental chairs, CADCAM scanning and milling machine for tooth coloured restorations, a dedicated dental microscope, panoramic x-ray machine for full mouth x-rays, a Cone Beam CT scanner for 3D images used for detailed implant planning and for diagnostic purposes. We also have on site conventional CT scanners and an MRI for more extensive investigations.

Quality focused

We have the skill, know-how, and extensive experience in implant dentistry, cosmetic treatment and complex restorative cases that has earned us an outstanding reputation for excellence. To achieve this, we actively choose to manage complex cases as a team. Combined specialist appointments and planning sessions allow us to provide high quality care.

Phobic patients

Our team are highly experienced at dealing with nervous or phobic patients, with sedation options being used when required. We are happy to have an informal chat, away from the dental chair. The clinic has a dedicated intravenous sedation unit set up and maintained to the standards that our consultant anaesthetist colleagues require to provide a safe and comfortable experience for our patients.

Everything dental

We provide a comprehensive range of services from regular dental examinations and treatment such as fillings, crowns, bridges, veneers, root canal treatment and teeth whitening to specialist orthodontic treatment, dental implant surgery, oral surgery and digital smile design.

All our restorative dentistry is cosmetic

Nobody asks for ugly fillings or horrible crowns. Patients seek natural aesthetically pleasing smiles to give back self-esteem, confidence and a youthful appearance. Cosmetic treatment involves most branches of dentistry such as restorative, orthodontics, whitening and implants.

All aspects of dental treatment

We provide a comprehensive range of dental services and treatments. Dentistry is multifaceted, the goal is to save, maintain and restore teeth. Various specialists work together, keeping the natural look and sensation of our patients' smiles.

I have always had a great fear of dentists but thanks to Dr Mark Diacono and his team who reassured me along the way all went very well! I recommend Dr Diacono who was always very patient and ready to address all of my fears. I can now smile with confidence! A very big Thank you!
