After the World Health Organization released a statement recommending people avoid going to the dentist for non-emergency visits, the Oklahoma Dental Association voiced its disagreement.According to a statement released earlier this month from the WHO, people should avoid going to the dentist until there’s a drop in transmission rates because dentists work in close proximity to patients’ faces. The Oklahoma Dental Association, however, said they are just as protected as any doctor.“People should not feel scared going to the dentists because we are used to taking infection control measures,” Oklahoma Dental Association President Paul Mullasseril said.Mullasseril told KOCO 5 that he’s disappointed with the WHO and said the organization’s statement is misleading.”Dental offices are probably one of the safest places you can go because of all the precautions we can take,” he said. “The N-95 mask, we also have something called the K-95 mask. On top of that, we have … Read More

unprecedented measures to expand their ability to care for our
current and anticipated COVID-19 cases, not to mention

CHICAGO—March 30, 2020—To allow states to expand their physician workforce during this critical time, the American Osteopathic Association’s Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA), which accredits the nation’s 38 osteopathic medical schools, will allow colleges of osteopathic medicine to offer early graduation to certain medical students in
To better understand why cellular medicine forms the foundation of health and beauty, consider your bed: if you get a surgical facelift, you get a tighter sheet. If you use cellular medicine to make the skin healthier, you get a new sheet (epidermis), a new mattress (dermis) and new box springs (fatty tissue and bone).
There’s a time to tighten the sheet (many of our members are cosmetic surgeons) but every surgeon will tell you that, even if you have surgery, the healthier and younger the tissue (new sheets) the better the results.
This group of scientists, physicians, and nurse-practitioners (members of the American Cosmetic Cellular Medicine Association) works to discover and to become expert at the best uses of cell biology to improve health and beauty.
