About The Dental and Implantology Unit Libya

The Dental & Implantology Unit opened its doors in May 1999. Our practice is situated within Saint James Hospital which is ranked amongst the top private healthcare organisations on the Maltese Islands. Two surgeries were put to immediate use by Mark and Susanna Diacono who had come to live in Malta a year earlier. Within one year the number of staff grew to six and now, a total of seventeen people work within the Unit.

The Unit is equipped with four state-of-the-art surgeries. Four 'specialist' dental surgeons and one junior dental surgeon work as a team and enable us to offer all aspects of specialised dental treatment other than fixed orthodontics. They are supported by five fully qualified surgery assistants and a team of visiting anaesthetic consultants.
