Growing Beautiful Teeth
Dr Estie Bav is the published author of her new book Growing Beautiful Teeth (Nov 2018) which is based on her considerable clinical and educational experience of over thirty years. Her book emphasizes the need for parents to get involved with their child’s dental development early, for maximum health benefit beyond just beautiful teeth.
It explains the importance of collaborative and integrative approaches to guide dental growth, including paying attention how the child breathes, sleeps and postures.
Outside of dentistry Dr Bav loves ballroom and Latin dancing, knitting, and cooking with love for a small audience of family and friends. She may also be found sailing at sea with her husband in a sailing boat somewhere along the east coast of Australia.
