Dental Surgery


Cherrybank Dental is a family focussed dental practice based in Balfron, Stirlingshire.

As someone who lives in the area, Dr Macmillan is keen to provide first class dental treatment  in a relaxed and friendly environment. We pride ourselves on being a small practice with an emphasis on personal care and attention. Many of our patients have been with the practice for decades and we understand the need to treat each patient as individuals and tailor treatments to their specific needs.

As a progressive practice, we have invested in the latest technologies (recent additions have been our state-of-the-art digital scanner and a CEREC milling machine) to allow us to provide the highest possible standards of patient care.


We offer comprehensive dental care on a private basis for adults, including prevention and cosmetic dentistry. You can choose to pay for your dental care as you receive it or join Denplan, a budgeting scheme that allows you to make monthly payments.


Please give us as much notice as possible when making cancellations. Cancellations within 24 hours of an appointment may incur a charge.
