Littleton, MA (February 12, 2014)
Provia Labs’ Store-A-Tooth™, a Stem Cell Bank specializing in dental stem cell preservation, announces the appointment of Dr. Gerry Curatola, dentist, author and humanitarian best known for his clinical contributions in cosmetic dentistry and wellness, to their Advisory Board.
Dr. Curatola cofounded CS Bioscience Inc., a dental biotech company, and currently serves as its Chairman of the Board. The company performs research and development of pioneering natural therapeutics that promote oral health. In addition, Dr. Curatola is the founder of Rejuvenation Dentistry, a wellness-focused global network of dental practices, and the co-inventor and co-developer of REVITIN Oral Therapy. Dr. Curatola has private dental practices in both Manhattan and East Hampton, New York.
Following a lifelong model of humanitarian service, Dr. Curatola traveled to Andhra Pradesh, India at the invitation of Dr. Krishna Ajjarapu, founder of an orphanage and school in the region, to help establish a dental and medical clinic which will serve thousands of impoverished in this community. Closer to home, Dr. Curatola helped to establish the Pediatric Dental Fund of the Hamptons, a dental charity founded by local pediatrician, Dr. Gail Schoenfeld, which provides free dental care to needy children on Long Island’s East End.
“We are extremely fortunate to have Dr. Curatola as part of our team”, said Provia Labs CEO Howard Greenman. “His passion for the integration of oral health with overall health and wellness is aligned perfectly with the value of banking stem cells from teeth that ultimately will be useful for a patient’s overall health.” Greenman adds, “Most importantly, Gerry is a great guy, has an infectious personality and is truly on a mission to improve patient’s health - globally.”
Dr Curatola, best known as “Dr. Gerry”, is a “Celebrity Dentist” and has contributed to numerous TV and radio programs including The Dr. Oz Show, The Martha Stewart Show, ABC News, FOX News, NBC, CBS, and CNN.
“I am excited about being an advisor to a world-class team like the one at Provia Labs”, says Dr. Curatola. “The decision to store dental stem cells now is a very important consideration for parents and their children who would otherwise discard this tissue. The future use of these valuable cells, stored in a robust, youthful state, is made possible by Provia Labs. Every dentist should provide their patients with the information to make an informed decision about banking their child’s stem cells.”
