After her grandmother and rescue dog had health issues because of dental disease, Emily Stein came up with a now-patented formula to help.
MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota — When looking at health, Emily Stein starts with the mouth.
Stein, a microbiologist and entrepreneur, is focused on tackling the root cause of dental disease.
It all started when Stein was studying at Stanford and her grandmother was living in an assisted living facility in Wisconsin. Stein's grandmother's rheumatoid arthritis was making it hard for her to brush her teeth. It led to several tooth extractions, followed by a stroke.
