The 2-day course expands the scope of oral preventative healthcare where dental practitioners will learn to model chronic disease as a result of diet and nutritional lifesyle factors. It aims to provide a background in scientific understanding for functional oral disease intervention. After the course, delegates will feel confident to integrate dietary modification as a means of altering the disease risks of their patients.
Nutrition & The Dental Practice is a complete overview of current evidence to model the future of preventative oral healthcare. Delegates will acquire the knowledge to incorporate dietary analysis and nutritional recommendations to implement into their diagnosis and treatment plan regimes. The course will demystify apparent inconsistencies in past and current dietary recommendations as a way to merge oral healthcare and nutritional therapy.

Dr Vijaya Molloy – Natural Dentistry Sydney
Steven's course provides a unique perspective on the science behind dental decay, going beyond sugar as a primary culprit, but also looking at minerals and genetics. The information Steven presents has a firm basis in science and research. Personally I found this course has positively altered the way I diagnose and manage my patients
Dr David Stephenson – Preventistry Albany Creek
Dr Steven Lin is raising the bar for dentists as health professionals. He challenges us to be responsible for health advice that should include at least dietary guidelines based on modern physiological and nutritional science. His lecture series provides dietary and nutritional education for the practitioner as relates to oral health and health in general.
If you haven't done a nutrition course in a while, perhaps it is time to enrol in Dr Steven Lin’s next seminar.
Dr Matthew Hopcraft – Clinical Associate Professor Matthew Scott Hopcraft is an Australian dentist, public health academic and television cook.
There's no doubt that oral health practitioners should be at the forefront of nutrition advice and education for patients - after all, good nutrition starts in the mouth. Steven gave a great overview of the importance of nutrition in overall health, and in dental health, with a lot of detailed information.
The course probably had the healthiest food options I've ever seen - virtually no sugar in sight.
I would definitely recommend this as an area that all oral health practitioners should investigate in more detail, and it's worth getting along to the next course that Dr Lin runs.
