Publisher's Summary

Throughout the years, dental health has often been characterized as a reflection of our overall health, where bad oral health results from issues with other parts of our body. But what if we flipped the paradigm? What if we thought about dental health as the foundation for our physical health as a whole?

Dr. Steven Lin, an experienced dentist and the world's first dental nutritionist, has analyzed our ancestral traditions, epigenetics, gut health, and the microbiome in order to develop food-based principles for a literal top-down holistic health approach. Merging dental and nutritional science, Dr. Lin lays out the dietary program that can help ensure you won't need dental fillings or cholesterol medications — and give you the resources to raise kids who develop naturally straight teeth. With our mouth as the gatekeeper of our gut, keeping our oral microbiome balanced will create a healthy body through a healthy mouth.

Dr. Lin arms you with a 40-day meal plan, complete with the Dental Diet food pyramid, exercises for the mouth, recipes and cooking techniques to help you easily and successfully implement his techniques into your everyday life. The tools to improve overall wellness levels and reverse disease are closer than we think — in our markets, in our pantries, and, most frequently, in our mouths — if not just a well-chosen bite or two away.

Finally a discussion of root cause and how to fix it

For years I have wondered what is causing so much illness and diseases in us and The dental diet says it quite simply and beautifully. Nutrition, it has everything to do with our health. Which the very definition of the word means free from illness and injury in Webster’s.
My chiropractor has a sign that says there is no wonder the word heal is in the word health. Many on line health bloggers tell us all disease start in our gut, our digestive system, not genetic or hereditary but digestive. This book explains it all concerning our mouth and teeth. I have talked to my dentist and periodontist and refreshing to know the practitioners can learn outside the box and teach their patients.
Great read from someone who needed this years ago.

Learned new things

Very intricate down the molecules. Eat fats if you have diabetes, strange, but may be true

Heal from the Inside Out, not "Teeth Whitener"

I applaud anyone who can carry the message of our bodies ability to heal and regenerate, as we age naturally.

This must be on every family’s bookshelf.

An amazingly simple book packed full of information about the relationship between food, our health and our dental health. My family health book of the year. Wonderful. Delighted it was narrated by the author. Packed full of useful and pragmatic information.

Outstanding

Would you listen to The Dental Diet again? Why?

Absolutely!!Steven has beautifully brought together all of the information and research that I've also been tirelessly searching for in one easy to read book. Being in the dental field myself and having an inquisitive mind I it answers a lot of questions that I ask about patients on a day to day basis. Its easy to digest and it excites me for the future of dentistry.

What did you like best about this story?

Everything, especially using easy to understand anecdotes to explain processes in the body. This will allow patients and clinicians to understand the content easier

Have you listened to any of Steven Lin’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I've listened to Steven on podcasts and I'm pleased he's done the audible version himself and not got a narrator. It's much more genuine.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I nodded all the way through and kept thinking 'This man thinks like I do' and everything he has written backs up all the research I've been doing myself. I'm so excited for the future of dentistry in prevention rather than cure.

Any additional comments?

It's a breath of fresh air to know that there are clinicians out there who think the same way. Food is medicine but food can be poison. I'm searching for the right advice to give patients and this book is a good starting point for anyone on the beginning of their journey. Well done Steven......keep fighting the fight

dentist review

As a dentist i have great respect for Steven's work and i think this topic is very important, my only criticism is that it was not written and presented in a captivating way which would help in spreading the message farther.
Great information and very relevant in today's world.
