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.
