He was an instructor at the Animal Dental Training Center in Baltimore, which teaches oral surgery and dental techniques to veterinarians from around the world. He lectures throughout the country on a variety of dental topics to veterinarians, technicians, breeders and animal owners. He is a past member of the faculty in the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences as a Clinical Assistant Professor in Veterinary Oral Surgery and Dentistry at the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Stein is the first veterinarian from the state of Tennessee to become a board certified specialist in Dentistry and Oral Surgery, and the only one who is based full-time in Nashville. He is looking forward to providing exceptional consultation and referral services to private veterinary practitioners and their clients.



Robyn was born in Michigan but grew up around Nashville, TN. Growing up, she always had a household full of different types of animals and knew she wanted to dedicate her life to helping them. She has a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science from The University of Tennessee Knoxville and began working at a veterinary clinic while finishing up her degree. She has worked her way up from kennel supervisor to a trained technician. She and her husband recently moved back to the Nashville area to pursue their careers and be closer to family. She is very excited about the opportunity to continue to learn and help patients at TNVDOS. She and her husband enjoy kayaking, camping, and their two dogs: a mini dachshund, Corndog, and a rat terrier, Pinky.


Helen was born and raised in Daphne, Alabama near Mobile Bay. She recently received her Bachelor of Science in Natural Resources & the Environment from Sewanee - the University of the South and hopes to dedicate her career to environmental conservation and wildlife education. Growing up along the Gulf Coast with a mother as her science teacher, she quickly became fascinated with the outdoors  and all types of wildlife. At school, her interests only grew stronger - eventually becoming involved with a Salamander habitat project and actively pursuing forest conservation courses. Helen has one rescue cat, Dexter, and has recently adopted a rescue puppy, Gustav or "Stavi." In her free time, she enjoys hiking, camping, drawing, and any activities that brings her outdoors.
