Our expert team comprises Principal Dentist Jonathan Lever, associate dentists Leigh-Ann Elias and Jonny Lightstone, two dedicated hygienists and three practice nurses as well as our Practice Manager, Karen Rose.


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 Leigh-Ann Elias


I Qualified from Pretoria University in 1997 soon after my 21st birthday. I left South Africa a few months after, very keen to see the world. I worked in general practice and undertook further training in maxillo-facial surgery in Aberdeen, Scotland and gained my MFDS from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. I then worked in Oxford and now London.


I continue to enjoy general practice as well as working at King’s College London, where I teach undergraduates oral surgery and also do a chronic pain clinic once a week. I am delighted to be working with Jonathan and his dynamic team. I am married with three small children.

Dr Jonny Lightstone


I graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2006 and have worked in mixed practices providing NHS and private care ever since. I currently spend my time working between practices based in Berkshire and here in Edgware. I'm a committed trainer within Health Education Thames Valley mentoring newly qualified dentists and helping them transition into general practice.


My passion is creating healthy smiles as well as maintaining them. In this I utilise the latest in minimally invasive treatments to provide the very best options for my patients in order to ensure health and aesthetics. I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry in particular cosmetic orthodontic treatment with Invisalign and composite bonding. I am committed to further education and have undertaken courses with leading dentists to be able to provide excellence in all aspects of his care.


I enjoy spending quality time with my wife Amy and two children Bella and Oliver. If Amy and I are lucky enough to get a babysitter then we are partial to a bit of fine dining. I am delighted to have recently joined the team at JL Dental care and I'm really excited to meet you.
