Is Stronger Than Ever In a previous newsletter, we detailed the opening and rise of OsteoStrong right here in Tulsa. It’s been such a successful program for so many members of our community that we want to continue to bring awareness to it in any way we can. Nearly 54 million Americans above the age of 50 suffer from osteoporosis and low bone mass. It keeps them from being active and hurts their quality of life. There are pharmaceutical routes to take in counteraction, but these have varied results, unpredictable side effects, and just don’t provide a sense of measurable progress. So when Marcy Smith first opened OsteoStrong Tulsa in April 2019, she made it her mission to restore quality of life to her patients by different means. “OsteoStrong is a facility that uses a circuit of four robotic musculoskeletal development machines to load the skeletal system and trigger bone growth naturally. It’s a once-weekly, 15-minute session specifically designed to strengthen the skeletal system,” Marcy says. The facility’s one-on-one training has a one-track goal but not a one-size-fits- all approach. The outcome is always to deliver stronger bones but through technology that can be implemented on a patient-by-patient basis. They’ve already accumulated over 200 patients in under one year and are only expecting that number to grow. Many patients in the Masterpiece Smiles office have visited OsteoStrong, and the consensus is inspiring: It’s a facility that helps them to once again start thinking about the life they can lead, rather than continuing to think about the life they can’t lead. People are stronger, healthier, and more confident for having taken part in the services OsteoStrong provides, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to continue showing our support for it. Learn more by attending an “Osteogenic Loading” presentation at the OsteoStrong facility. Reserve your seat by calling 918-528-3828 or by sending an email to We promise you’ll be glad you did. OSTEOSTRONG



• • • •

2 tsp kosher salt

2 large russet potatoes, scrubbed

1 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp black pepper

1 large onion, peeled and cut into quarters

Safflower or vegetable oil, for frying

• •

2 large eggs

1/2 cup all-purpose flour


1. Using either a food processor with a coarse grating disc or the coarse side of a box grater, grate potatoes and onion. (If using a food processor, halve or quarter potatoes.) Once grated, wrap in a clean dish towel or cheesecloth to wring out as much moisture as possible. 2. Transfer to a mixing bowl and mix in eggs, flour, salt, baking powder, and pepper. 3. Heat a heavy-bottomed pan containing 1/4-inch of oil over medium- high heat. Use a heaping tablespoon to drop batter into the hot pan, working in batches. Use a spatula or spoon to form them into discs. Fry about 5 minutes per side, until deeply browned. 4. Transfer to a paper towel-lined wire rack to drain, and serve alongside applesauce and sour cream.
