“Wonderful experience with Dr. Stein and two of my dogs. He's so knowledgeable, skilled and compassionate. He took the time to explain the situations clearly and concisely at a level I could understand. Always open for questions and made sure I had the information necessary to make an informed decision. HIGHLY recommend this specialist and feel fortunate to have him in our area. Thrilled you now have your own facility, Dr. Stein!”

Nora Sewell


“When our family vet discovered that my cat, Munchkin, was experiencing teeth resorption and likely was in pain, she recommended Dr. Stein to remove the deteriorating teeth. He and his wonderfully caring and attentive staff treated Munchkin like one of their own. They kept me fully informed about the procedures and what to expect. The surgery was successful, and my cat recovered without any problems. I can't thank Dr. Stein and his folks enough for their top-notch professional treatment.”

Bill Hudgins


“I really have to thank [Dr. Stein and staff] for the amazing job they do every day in caring for our furry loved ones. They really have improved the health and wellbeing of my little guy, Turner. He has probably lived with dental disease and pain for a number of years. The change I see in him since his treatment is completely for the better. Turner is at least 14 years old and he is like a puppy again!”

Brian Harrison

“Since the first time I met Dr Stein on a professional basis he has been a great resource to me and the other veterinarians in our practice. He was instrumental in helping us set up our dental suite from the beginning. He is always available and eager to help with our cases anytime we call for a consultation. Our clients that we have referred to him have relayed back to us how professional thorough and kind he and his staff have been to them and their pets. As I have further been able to meet with him on a personal basis I have found him to be very approachable and eager to share his knowledge.”
