East Hampton resident, renowned dentist, and all-around nice guy Gerry Curatola, known to many as just “Dr. Gerry,” is back with a new business in the Hamptons, the first of its kind on the East End.
He closed up his thriving practice in East Hampton about six years ago, but his new Rejuvenation Health, which will open at 56 The Circle, East Hampton, in September, offers an integrative dental, medical, and wellness center.
Dr. Gerry has contributed to numerous television and radio programs including “The Dr. Oz Show,” “The Martha Stewart Show,” various news channels. He has also been featured in Vogue, Marie Claire, Town and Country, The Purist, and other national and local publications.
“Wellness and integrative medicine have always been my first love,” Curatola said. “Way back, under Dr. Alan Pressman in New York City, I studied all kinds of what today could be termed as alternative medicine, about the importance of supporting the microbiome. It all starts with the mouth.”
In fact, Curatola has written a new book, The Mouth-Body Connection, and is one of the featured authors at the upcoming East Hampton Library’s Authors Night on Saturday, August 11, at 555 Montauk Highway in Amagansett, from 5 to 7:30 PM. The book focusses on wellness through the oral microbiome and introduces a 28-Day program to create a healthy mouth to reduce inflammation and prevent disease throughout the body.
Guests that visit Dr. Gerry’s book table will receive a free tube of his toothpaste, Revitin, which was created by Dr. Curatola and Dr. David Shuch, based on the emerging science of the oral microbiome. Revitin is made with natural nutrients, containing key vitamins and essential enzymes, and cleans and whitens teeth naturally.
Rejuvenation Health will feature conventional medical and dentistry practices including safe mercury removal in conjunction with ancient and holistic treatment plans based on the principles of bioregulatory medicine. It will also feature biologic wellness treatments such as IV-drip therapy RejuvDrip (beneficial for immune system support, detoxification, recovery from stress and exhaustion, vitamin deficiency treatment, and peak athletic performance), Clear Mind brainwave syncing and balancing, whole-body vibrational therapy, hydrocolonic therapy and lymphatic drainage, and the most advanced nutritional supplements (which provide maximum cellular nutrition and detoxification support).
Curatola is excited to provide this service. “I live out here,” he said. “I raised my family out here. This is home for me.”
When he’s not working, he’s still busy, and it usually involves helping others. As a dentist, he has traveled to five continents to provide dental services in areas that are underserved, as well as to educate and equip other dental professionals to do the same. He helped establish the Pediatric Dental Fund of the Hamptons, and provided pro bono dental services for The Retreat, along with many other causes he supports.
Curatola serves on the Advisory Council of the South Fork Natural History Museum in Bridgehampton, and is on the leadership board of the East Hampton Day Care Learning Center. In 2004, he and his wife, Georgia, established the Dr. & Mrs. Gerald P. Curatola Nursing Station at NYU’s Bluestone Center. In 2006, a larger gift established the Curatola Wing for Clinical Research at New York University College of Dentistry.
In 2007, 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 in this impoverished community.
Some of the other practitioners joining him at Rejuvenation Health include Gabrielle Lyon, DO, a prominent functional-medicine physician and specialist in nutrition and muscle metabolism; Steven Levine, M.D., a renowned aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon, and pioneer in non-surgical beauty restoration and nutrition; Kimchi Moyer, L.Ac., the founder of Resopathy, a unique biofeedback system rooted in European Biologic Medicine; and Keith Durante, M.D, FACS, a board-certified microsurgeon and the leading biologic hair restoration specialist.
“Rejuvenation Health is a holistic evidence-based medical system that empowers individuals seeking optimal health and wellbeing to unlock the life-force within,” Curatola said. “I am delighted to offer our community innovative, evidence-based holistic health experiences focusing on biologic dentistry, medicine, beauty and wellness by myself and other leading experts at our exquisite, restorative space. We welcome everyone to join us in late September.”
