The Dental Diet

Modern dental health is a disaster zone. We are in the midst of an orthodontia epidemic. Four million U.S. kids need braces and 10 million need wisdom teeth extractions. Gum disease affects half of all U.S. adults, tooth decay is the most chronic disease in children today, and oral health concerns are both warnings and causes of other illnesses that harm the entire body. But reversing the trend is easier than we think; in fact, it all starts with your pantry.

In The Dental Diet: The Surprising Link between Your Teeth, Real Food, and Life-Changing Natural Health (Hay House, Inc., January 9, 2018), Dr. Steven Lin merges dental health and science to reveal how the right nutrition can improve your teeth and overall health.

An experienced dentist and the world’s first dental nutritionist, Dr. Lin lays out the ultimate dietary program to ensure you have a healthy mouth and body for the rest of your life. He even reveals why crooked teeth are the result of a nutritional program, and how parents can prevent braces by feeding children the right food starting with the earliest stages of their lives.

The Dental Diet arms readers with the tools they need – including a 40-day meal plan, exercises for the mouth, recipes, and simple cooking techniques to use in everyday life.

Combining cutting-edge research with real world applications, Dr. Lin’s approach will revamp your eating habits for a long and healthy life.
