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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

not good enough for everybody

I totally understand and agree with the basic nutritional principles in this book but not with the strategies to meet our needs.
Its emphasis in animal products to get the fat soluble vitamins seem to me unnecessary.
I was already informed on the subject of those nutrients and was curious about how different this book would be from the book Cure Tooth Decay.

Meal plan

It’s a different view on a diet book. The 40 day meal plan is quite nice although it’s rather hard to listen to.( useful in PDF version)

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.

Introductory; disappointing for the well-read

This is your basic paleo nutrition book with phrases like “this also applies to your mouth” added in. There is a nice discussion of Weston A. Price -- great stuff if you're not familiar, but if you are, don't expect any new info here.

I really wish there were less rehashing of basic paleo ideas and more information about dental health.

I finished the book and didn’t gain any insights on issues related to standards of care in dental or periodontal medicine. I now know this dentist’s regurgitated opinions related to the food guide pyramid and lipid-heart hypothesis, but I don’t know which (if any) mouthwashes may be helpful, how to rehab receded gums, or whether topical applications of any nutrients can help with tooth decay.

Bored to death

You can skip the first 7-8 chapters, there is absolutely no information in those.
It starts giving some info after that, but it is like pulling teeth.
I have found myself skip about 90% of this book, plus the accent of the narrator is hard to understand at times.

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.
