About

Bio

Dr. Victor Zeines is founder of the Manhattan and Woodstock Institute for Holistic Dentistry. He received his degree from the New York City College of Dentistry and earned his Masters in Science for Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport. As a holistic dentist, Dr. Zeines is passionate about educating the world about the crucial connection between oral health and general physical health. Unhealthy gum tissue leads to inflammation which has been linked as a causative factor in heart attack, stroke, and complications from pregnancy and diabetes. Dr. Zeines wants to give patients an understanding that a clean mouth can help them lead a longer, healthier life. Dr. Zeines has appeared on Good Day New York, NPR, WBAI, and Senior Voice America. He has spoken at the New Life Expo, the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, the Association for HydroTherapists, and was also a contributor to the film "Food Matters." Dr. Zeines is the author of three books, "Healthy Mouth Healthy Body” “Living A Longer Life- Naturally” and “Your Tongue Never Lies”
