Welcome to

Shorts & Associates

Your friendly family dentist in Alloa, Clackmannanshire


Here at Short & Associates we ensure every patient is greeted with a warm welcome from the reception staff and dental team.

Established more than 60 years ago, our well-known practice has enjoyed treating generations of patients throughout the years. We have continued to evolve and remain a modern, efficient surgery promoting traditional values.

Appointments can be made by telephone during surgery hours. Initial appointments are usually for an examination and to discuss to any specific requests for treatment. This will allow us to discuss your options and provide a treatment plan if required.

If, at your initial appointment, you believe you require treatment – for example if you have a broken tooth or require new dentures – please let our reception staff know so we can plan the start of your care right away.

Our Services

We can offer the widest range of dental services available through the NHS or private dentistry, so whatever your dental needs, we’ve got you covered.

Our services range from general dentistry, such as dental check-ups and hygiene appointments to restorative work such as fillings, crowns and implants. We also offer cosmetic dentistry to allow patients to achieve a more aesthetic smile using treatments such as orthodontics and teeth whitening.


We are able to combine a variety of dental techniques into a full treatment plan in order for you to achieve the desired result, this is called smile design. Whatever your needs, we will always discuss every option available to you so that you are fully involved with the decision around your treatment.

We are also able to combine the services we offer with treatment referrals as required using our trusted network of dental practices.
