Providing top quality dental care to patients in Stirlingshire

At Riverside Dental Practice, we are proud to offer an excellent standard of care in our dental practice. With fully accredited staff and top notch equipment to clean and sterilise instruments as well as two fully equipped dental surgeries, we work hard to offer you safety and quality care. We also have a modern digital radiographic system to produce excellent quality x-ray images. This helps us make accurate patient diagnoses while ensuring you receive a far smaller dose of radiation than a standard x-ray, making for a safer patient experience.

Want to schedule an appointment at the practice? Our records and appointment system is completely computerised – meaning that booking an appointment is easy, and you can rest assured that your personal details are protected. Find out more here.

Norman Allan BDS


I have worked at Riverside since 1993 and I enjoy the variety of work that general practice provides particularly making a difference to patients’ lives by providing cosmetic treatments such as whitening, crowns, bridges and veneers. I have also restored several implant cases over the last few years.

After an intensive training course I am now a Bioclear Certified Practitioner. The Bioclear method is used to treat conditions such as black triangles, midline spaces, small misshapen teeth and can restore a patient’s smile without having to prepare teeth as with crowns or veneers.

Away from the surgery I enjoy playing golf,suffering following Falkirk Football Club and watch probably too much sport and American crime dramas on TV.
