History and Tradition

During its more than 60 years of eventful history of dental equipment manufacturing, Diplomat Dental has earned itself a solid reputation of the top manufacturer.

Since 1997 our products have a continuous success on the international dental market. Our impressive product portfolio ranges from dental units, chairs, stools to lights and other accessories. All our products are made with comfort and excellence in mind and will surely meet the requirements of even the most demanding dental professionals.

It all started back in 1952 as a repair service for medical equipment produced by Medical Mechanics (Liečební mechanika) factory in Prague. Some years later Medical Mechanics changed its name to Chirana Prague and decided to move some selected production lines to Piestany-based repair service factory and so the history of medical equipment manufacturing has started. In a meantime, the weapon production facility in Stara Tura had been converted to a medical equipment production facility – a more perspective industry for the post-war times. In the 60’s the former Czechoslovak government merged these two independent competing activities into jointed coordinated manufacture of medical equipment, known as Chirana Concern. Since 1960’s Piestany-based factory in association with Chirana Stara Tura has collaborated with other manufactures in the field of development and production of medical equipment.

In 1990 the central government was resigned and the country started a new political line. From the year 1997 Chirana-Dental Piestany, s.r.o. is a legal entity, carrying in itself long and eventful history from the year 1952. We are proud to have such a background and are truly thankful to Prague factory and Chirana Concern, which has been a very dynamic entity with well-established foreign trade branches and effective international co-operation.

Since 1997 Chirana-Dental has been concentrating solely on dental equipment manufacture and on establishing commercial and service networks and began promoting Diplomat brand to international markets. As Diplomat products were becoming more and more popular among dental professionals, company’s capital and service resources have been increased significantly. In 2012, in order to be closer to our customers, we have changed our name from Chirana-Dental to Diplomat Dental and started a new chapter in company’s history.
