About The Dental and Implantology Unit at Saint James Hospital

The Dental and 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 five state-of-the-art surgeries. Six Specialist dental surgeons work as a team and enable us to offer all aspects of specialised dental treatment other than fixed orthodontics. They are supported by six fully qualified surgery assistants and a team of visiting anaesthetic consultants.

 

At the Dental and Implantology Unit we have the skill, know-how and extensive experience in implant dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and the treatment of complex restorative cases that has earned us an outstanding reputation for excellence.

 

We provide a comprehensive range of services from regular dental examinations and treatment such as fillings, teeth whitening and dental hygiene services to specialist children’s dentistry, dental implant surgery and smile re-design.

 

Our team are highly experienced at dealing with nervous patients and are happy to have an informal chat with you, away from the dental chair. For longer treatments and anxious or phobic patients we offer sedation. We pride ourselves in the level of care we provide and our ethos of never compromising on quality of materials or time.

"You have made the right decision"
Clinic's favourite review
100%Reviewed 03 Feb 2011 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
Were you pleased with the treatment? The Dental and Implantology unit situated at Saint James Hospital in Malta is a very rare find, offering exceptional customer care. From the very first contact with the clinic we had prompt replies to all questions. It may sound funny when you talk about having dental work done, but from the time you enter the door of this clinic you know you have made the right decision, right down to the price.
Would you recommend the clinic? I would have no hesitation in recommending this clinic, and indeed have done so to our family and friends. Lisa Marten was our first point of contact Both my wife and I found Lisa to be very courteous, friendly and extremely efficient at organizing all the dental appointments. Dr Susanna Diacono did all the dental work she put my nerveous wife mind at ease and is so professional and dedicated to her profession that the end result spoke for itself
Would you return for further treatment? I would strongly recommend anyone contemplating dental treatment to look up the Dental and Implantology unit in Malta website, and combine this with a beautifull Maltese holiday as we did.

"I needed extensive dental work as my teeth were failing"
100%Reviewed 03 Dec 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Extractions, Dental Implants, Dental Crowns, Dental Bridges
As an older person, I recently reached the stage where I needed extensive dental work as my teeth were failing and my severe gag reflex rendered dentures of any kind impossible.
A comprehensive treatment plan was drawn up and carefully discussed with me before going ahead. This required the extraction of several teeth, initially planned for five but I believe there were more. I had approximately six implants in my upper jaw and three in the lower jaw. But the crowning glory (no pun intended) was the bridge work for the upper jaw. This is of the highest standard, and great care was taken to ensure a good colour match with what is left of my own teeth. It looks completely natural and I am not sure that anyone would be aware of how much effort and expertise went into reaching this stage. I would have really hated one of those bright white bridges that you see too often!

This was expensive treatment, but I view it as investment for life. The implants and bridge fitted have a projected life, with good care and hygiene, of 15-20 years although the bridge may need changing after 10-15 years due to wear.

I would find it hard to recommend the work of this clinic highly enough. I am a very difficult dental patient as I have a severe gag reflex, which makes almost all treatment impossible without sedation. This in turn led me to being very nervous of visits to the dentist.

The care, consideration and encouragement of the professional staff here has brought me to a stage where I am comfortable entering the dental surgery - a simple visit that previously would have left me in a state of near collapse.

Obviously this amount of work took a fair amount of time, and I always received what I consider to be the highest standards of care and courtesy. Everyone from the Receptionists, through the very lovely dental nurses to Mark and Susanna Diacono and the various anaesthetists were outstanding. Quite apart from the care at the time of the appointments, I appreciated the follow up phone calls to ensure that I was OK and recovering well.

If you are a nervous patient, have a sensitive gag reflex or require any kind of dental work, but especially the extensive type of treatment I have had, I strongly recommend you visit the Dental and Implantology Unit; I am confident that you will receive the same world-class treatment I have.

"Top class repair of a chipped front tooth"
100%Reviewed 06 Aug 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Cosmetic Dentist Consultation
I had a check up and repair to a chipped front tooth. It was the most comprehensive check up I have had. I understood why I was having problems with my flossing from an excellent briefing using my X-rays and my chip was fixed by a dental artist. After six months it is still perfect and my next check up indicated my new flossing regime is working, hurrah!

Having spent a fortune over the years visiting a Harley Street dentist I was concerned that when I moved abroad my treatment might suffer. I should not have worried, this practice is world class. A comfortable reception, well equipped rooms and top class professional dentists make going to the dentist almost a pleasure. This includes the bill which was a fraction of that in London.

"No need to cover my face anymore"
100%Reviewed 10 Jun 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
I needed dental implants or full time dentures but I was always afraid of the big decision. I had spent several years going round dentists...root canal treatments, one of my teeth had cracked, regular fillings and several tooth extractions. I had several teeth missing. I was all the time covering my mouth, as I could not smile without showing the big gapes over my upper gum. Lack of teeth made me feel Old, at the age of 43. My sister convinced me to visit the Dental Unit. I meet Dr Diacono, we spoke and we discussed my fears. My fear of dentures, which I was forced to use at that time and teeth that were shaped badly! I had several visits to the unit preparing for the implants. All the time Dr Diacono patiently reassuring me. We planed a date, an anesthetist was booked. Entering the Unit that morning I was met by the receptionist, this ladies gives you a very good feel when you enter the Unit, and always makes you welcome with a sincere smile.
The team was ready for me, sterile packs, everywhere scrubbed and clean....this was the day. A vein flow was sited, Dr Diacono asked me for my favorite singer and Elvis was the last voice I heard.
When I woke up I was wearing my temporary teeth. No More Dentures, no more gapes. I had my new teeth on! I left an hour after waking up, walking to the car.
Analgesia plans had been made ahead. I cannot say I was pain free, but I was prepared. My face was swollen, and bruised, I felt like a boxer after a good match. I still managed to eat and chew.
Three months later I got my new set of teeth, with the colour and shape I had chosen. And my face looks great. It looks the same, no it looks better. Now I can freely smile. No need to cover my face any more. Its an expense that I am seriously considering of repeating on my lower jaw without any fear. At the clinic you are treated like family, and to be honest ..... I miss you! You are a great team!

The clinic was chosen because of the good reviews I had read, even though at the time nothing was going to convince me to have all my teeth extracted at one go. I feel like visiting friends and not worry about the pain when going to a dentist. Making appointments is quiet easy. The chirpy receptionist reminds you the day before of the appointment. Everyone makes you feel at home. The place is clean and very professional. Thank you guys, you made my dream come true!

I am very pleased with how the Dental clinic at Saint James Hospital treated me. I needed to have crown installed and Dr Patric Wassallo did his outermost to arrange with the dental technician so could have my crown made in time and installed before I had to leave Malta. I felt confident with Dr Wassallo he had a very skilled and professional way. The administrative personnel was also very professional and polite and easy to deal with.
