TEEF for Life combines the fundamentals of microbiology and molecular nutrition to improve the oral microbiome and promote dental health in a safer, revolutionary way. Emily Stein, Ph.D. (CSO), researched and developed a solution to oral dysbiosis after her grandmother and her senior rescue dog both experienced life-threatening health issues caused by their dental disease. Her company, Primal Health, LLC, is focused on developing innovative products (TEEF for Life brand) that safely target the root cause of dental disease so pets and people can live healthier, longer lives. In 2008 she first began developing Selective Microbial Metabolism Regulation Technology (SMMRT)®, which is focused on using metabolic influencers to rehabilitate diseasecausing bacterial biofilms in favor to improve outcomes for dental and overall health. Emily spent 7 years as a research fellow at Stanford University in Rheumatology and Immunology focused on the neuro-endocrine-immune axis in autoimmune and chronic inflammatory diseases. She holds a Ph.D. in Microbiology from the University of California at Berkeley where she studied inter- and intra-cellular signaling pathways involved in stress response and community development in bacteria and received her B.S. in Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Iowa where she studied the interaction between M. tuberculosis and innate immune cells. She is a leading subject matter expert/key opinion leader in microbiome-related science and research and presents on the topic worldwide.
