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


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.
