The leading position of MALO CLINIC comes from 6 differentiating factors that determine its success and exponential growth: Innovation | Excellence | Leadership | Confidence | Safety | Generosity.


Paulo Malo was born in Angola in 1961. He came from an entrepreneurial family and from a very young age was stimulated to learn the value of work.

With “April 25 th”, the family moves to Cape Town, South Africa. It is in an English boarding school that he completes high school, and learns the rigor, strategy and taste of winning. After having entered the course of Marine Biology, he falls in love with Medicine and Neurosurgery, at the time little explored at the level of research, it seems to him the perfect course.

But this finding coincides with the end of apartheid and with all the changes that the country was witnessing. Once again, the family had to start all over again. This time in Portugal, seeking the comfort of the mother tongue and the support of family and friends.

In Coimbra he studied medicine and later chooses to deepen his knowledge in the area of dental medicine, attending the Faculty of Dental Medicine in Lisbon, where he completed his degree. His determination, curiosity, and enthusiasm for complicated cases made his appointments, in his first doctor’s office, no longer satisfing for his desire to go further. It is at this time that he launches into what will be one of his great projects: revolutionizing oral rehabilitation. In the early 1990s, frustrated with traditional approaches to edentulous patients and patients with missing or damaged teeth, Paulo Malo, founder and president of MALO CLINIC, created and developed the All-On-4® surgical technique, an alternative to removable dentures and traditional techniques of dental implants, considered the greatest advance in the area of implantology since Bränemark.

“The All-On-4® completely changes people’s lives and, because there were no good alternatives, it had a great impact. MALO CLINIC views Research & Development as a fundamental strategic bet, turning this technique into a process in constant evolution”.

Although it teaches this technique to the medical community, the fact of working daily in its improvement, ensures that MALO CLINIC maintains a position of vanguard in the area of Implantology. This minimally invasive surgical procedure, with no need for bone tansplants and easy maintenance, allows to put all fixed teeth in a single day, safely and with high success rates compared to traditional methods. Over the years, in association with this revolutionary technique and with the aim of perfecting it, the MALO CLINIC team has developed a set of products, protocols and techniques that today integrate what is known as the MALO CLINIC Protocol. Worldwide, thousands of people have already been treated with this unique Oral Rehabilitation Protocol.


23 years of research and development expertise, creating and developing revolutionary and innovative surgical techniques, have made us an international reference. The result: several implants, components, surgical objects and dental prostheses designed and patented and used by the international medical community, as well as more than 70 Scientific articles published in internationally renowned journals; Creators of the All-on-4®, revolutionary surgical technique that allows to put all the fixed teeth in a single day.
