First-time author Lawrence, a holistic dentist and spiritual counselor, with assistance from coauthor Tabatsky, questions many commonly held ideas about oral health.... Lawrence offers much to think about as he challenges mainstream dentistry.
I’ve had the honor and privilege to know Stephen Lawrence for over 15 years, as a colleague practitioner of the healing arts and as his patient. He has an extraordinary ability to share his wisdom and integrative experience with his patients. Stephen has written this book to share his wisdom and knowledge with the world; to support, guide and empower everyone.
