“Vitamin D is on the BASE of that nutrient pyramid because we are designed to take energy from the sun.”

Dr Steven Lin is a board-registered dentist, TEDx speaker with featured in The Sydney Morning Herald, MindBodyGreen, Readers Digest, Woman’s Health and many more. Trained at USYD with a background in biomedical science, he is a passionate whole-health advocate, focusing on the link between nutrition and dental health. His mission is to prevent dental diseases instead of treating them.

Steven’s program helps his patients solve the cause of dental disease. It merges dental nutrition, breathing, airways, functional orthodontics and sleep health. Today the oral-systemic link is clearer than ever. And it’s helping the next generation of children to avoid braces naturally.

In January 2018, his book The Dental Diet will be released in the US, UK, Australia and Germany. The Dental Diet is a journey of ancestral medicine, the human microbiome, and epigenetics. It explains the foods for healthy teeth based on whole, delicious nutrition. Buy your book here!!
