Dr Jonathan Lever

Principal Dentist

I qualified at The Royal London Hospital in 1985 and entered hospital dental service working at The Royal London, St George’s and Kings College hospitals. I then moved into general practice, and continued my education at Eastman Dental hospital, gaining an MSc in 1992.


Having had my own practice in Potters Bar for 14 years, I have enjoyed establishing this practice in Edgware which opened in 2007. I am always appreciative of the trust placed in me by patients, whether they are new to the practice or 3rd generation under my care.

Dr Jonny Lightstone


I graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2006 and have spent my time in general practice ever since. I have worked in mixed practices in Berkshire for the last 14 years and I was delighted to join the JL Dental Care team in 2020. I love the team spirit, the warmth and the family feeling all the team bring in order to deliver high quality and bespoke dental care in a warm and nurturing environment to clients from near and afar.

I am passionate in creating healthy and beautiful smiles by utilising the latest in minimally invasive treatments. I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry but a passion of mine is creating beautiful and natural smiles with clear aligners such as Invisalign and composite bonding.

I am committed to further education and development as well as embracing the future of digital dentistry to improve my care towards all patients.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my children Bella and Oliver. Even I struggle to get them to brush their teeth. I look forward to seeing all soon.
