Lime Tree Dental Dentists

The practice is owned by Nicholas Williams BDS known as Nick. Nick has a vast experience of general dental practice. He carries out a wide range of treatments to restore/rebuild/replace teeth, maintain & improve gum health but also straighten teeth as well.

Scott Jones BDS MFDS RCS(Ed) works at Lime Tree on Tuesdays offering Dental Implants & Facial Aesthetic treatments in addition to his high quality, general dentistry. Click here or on his name to see his profile.

Lacie Bowen BDS BSC FdSc works at Lime Tree on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays offering her high quality, general dentistry. Click here or on her name to see her profile.

Ellie Tomkins, BSc Dental Hygiene & Therapy works at Lime Tree on Fridays offering Dental Hygiene services. Click here or on her name to see her profile.

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

Nick is a member 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.

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. Septodont publised an article about Nick's use of Biodentine at Lime Tree in The Times in January 2019. In previous years, he has presented lectures on the use of All Ceramic Zirconia Crowns & Bridges to several groups of dentists.

Nick has always enjoyed sharing his knowledge with fellow dentists & students. As a result, Nick was a part-time Clinical Teaching Fellows at the University Of Bristol's Dental School/Hospital for 9 years from 2010-19.

Lime Tree Dental Dentists

Scott Jones BDS sees patients at Lime Tree on Tuesdays. Scott qualified from the University of Bristol and was taught by Nick. Nick says "it's great that a dentist that I played a part in teaching a few years ago now wants to come to work with us & bring his range of skills & 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.

Scott shares the practice ethos of putting patients in control of their own dental health. Like Nick he keeps up to date with the latest techniques and materials to deliver high quality dentistry. All of our dentists have a preventative approach to their dentistry & are interested in cosmetic techniques to achieve beautiful smiles.

Lacie Bowen BDS BSC FdSc joined the team at Lime Tree in 2021. A confident and enthusiastic dentist with a keen eye for detail and a commitment to providing patients with the highest quality care possible.

Lacie was formerly a dental technician before going on to train as a dentist. Nick had a hand in teaching Lacie dentistry at university in 2015-2016 and thought she was a fantastic dentist then. In addition to being a dentist, Lacie is a Forensic Odontologist outside of surgery hours, where she works alongside Avon and Somerset Police, pathologists & Coroner.

Lacie says "I am committed to, and adept at, providing patients with a comfortable and successful experience. I believe my skills gained as a Dental Technician allow me enhanced problem-solving skills as a dentist. I pride myself on having excellent communication skills and look forward to meeting the patients at Lime Tree". Lacie is at Lime Tree four days a week (Mon, Weds, Thurs & Fri).

Ellie Tomkins, BSc Dental Hygiene & Therapy: I can provide oral health education to adults and children, as well as clinically carrying out preventive and periodontal and restorative treatments. Working in dentistry always gives me enormous satisfaction. It is great when I see happy smiles of my patients, and in a way I am part of that".
