Dr. Keith Stein

Dr. Keith Stein was born in North Carolina and grew up in Tennessee. He attended the University of the South in Sewanee, TN where he obtained his BA in Psychology. He worked as a counselor for a couple of years before attending Auburn University where he obtained his BS in Animal Science (1993) and DVM (1997).

After graduation from veterinary school, he worked in private practice for several years before entering into a residency in Oral Surgery and Dentistry at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine under Dr. Sandra Manfra, one of the founding veterinarians of the American Veterinary Dental College.  After completing his residency in 2004 he  worked in private specialty practices in Ohio, New Jersey and Maryland before coming back home to Tennessee to build the first full time specialty dentistry and oral surgery practice in the state to be fully owned by a specialist.  He is board-certified by the American Veterinary Dental College (Diplomate AVDC) and is a member of the American Veterinary Dental Society, previously serving as a member of the Credentials Committee and chair of the Review & Assessment Examination Committee for the specialty college.  Dr. Stein has built four different successful specialty practices over the years.  In addition he has volunteered his expertise to the captive zoo animals in Nashville, Columbus(OH), and Baltimore(MD).   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, having successfully passed the rigorous three day examination in 2004.   He is looking forward to providing exceptional consultation and referral services to private veterinary practitioners and their clients.

In his spare time Dr. Stein enjoys being a dad, riding his motorcycle, being active in his church, and practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
