Dr. Steven Lin, author of The Dental Diet is on the Nutrition Heretic Podcast People avoid the dentist for all sorts of reasons; from the pain of getting their mouth drilled to the painful amounts of money they have to spend on drilling and treatments.

Dr. Steven Lin is a dentist, TEDx speaker, and author of The Dental Diet. With a background in biomedical science, Dr. Lin has dedicated his career to outline the nutritional basis of dental disease.
