Lime Tree Dental Dentists

The practice is owned in partnership between Jonathan Jones (BDS) and Nicholas Williams (BDS). Please feel free to call us Jonathan and Nick. In addition, Jonathan’s wife Helen Mannion–Jones (BDS BSc(Hons)) carries out dentistry under sedation for our very nervous patients. (See section on Sedation for details). We are very pleased to introduce Scott Jones BDS & Sara Harford BDS MFDS RCS(Ed) who will be working at Lime Tree on Mondays & Tuesdays. Click on the names to see their profiles.

We are all registered with the General Dental Council. Click here for our registration numbers.

Lime Tree is a member of the British Dental Association.

Nick & Jonathan are members of a national research group called the PREP Panel. The Prep panel is a select group of dentists, run by the University of Birmingham that researches and evaluates the use of brand new state of the art materials, (usually before they are launched to market) in the dental practice environment. This allows us to assess the best materials for use in our patients and as a whole the PREP panel publishes its results to advise other dentists on the use of the materials assessed. See Below for current study/trial.

We use a range of modern state of the art materials (including the new All Ceramic Zirconia Crowns and Bridges) and “tried and tested” traditional materials. We will choose the best material, after taking into account the situation, your cosmetic & functional requirements and cost to you.

Nick has been working with Septodont (the manafacturers of Biodentine) & has given lectures to dentists from around the UK & across Europe on this fantastic new product. In previous years, he has also presented lectures on the use of All Ceramic Zirconia Crowns & Bridges to several groups of dentists.

Nick & Jonathan have always enjoyed sharing their knowledge with fellow dentists & students. As a result, Nick & Jonathan are both part-time Clinical Teaching Fellows at the University Of Bristol’s Dental Hospital.

Lime Tree Dental Dentists

Scott Jones BDS sees patients at Lime Tree on Tuesdays. Sara Harford BDS MFDS RCS(Ed) is now part of our sedation team & offers our nervous patients treatment under conscious sedation. Both qualified from the University of Bristol and were taught by Nick & Jonathan. Nick says "it's great that dentists that we played a part in teaching a few years ago now want to come to work with us & bring their range of experience to Lime Tree".

Scott says: “Since qualifying I have worked in general dental practice striving to give my patients a relaxed, informed and pain free dental experience. I enjoy providing cosmetic dental treatment. I am experienced in the treatment of bruxism (tooth grinding) using devices that relax your facial muscles thus reducing headaches.” Scott provides facial aesthetic treatments, for further information click here.

Sara explains: "After graduating, I have worked in dental practices in Devizes, Australia & Bristol. I worked for a year as an oral surgeon at the Royal United Hospital, Bath. During this time I gained membership to FGDP of the Royal College of Surgeons. I enjoy getting to know my patients and making their experience of dentistry pleasant as possible. I also have a particular interest in treating nervous patients for who I offer sedation “

Scott & Sara share the practice ethos of putting patients in control of their own dental health. Like Nick & Jonathan they keep up to date with the latest techniques and materials to deliver high quality dentistry. They have a preventative approach to their dentistry & are interested in cosmetic techniques to achieve beautiful smiles.
