Dr. Mary Celeste Dement
Dr. Dement attended Mercer University School of Medicine and Medical College of Georgia (MCG), completing her MD in 1993. Following an internship in Internal Medicine and a residency in Emergency Medicine at MCG she began her career at University Hospital in Augusta, Georgia. There she served in multiple administrative and committee positions to help provide excellent care for her patients and throughout the hospital system.
Although providing emergency care to people in their moments of dire need is a passion for her, she realized that she may be able to help patients in a different way. Despite receiving primary care at the standard, or even exceptional level, she saw that many of her patients continued to return to her ER with worsening diabetes, debilitating fractures and no real improvement in the risk factors that lead to heart disease, strokes and early death. Understanding that the majority of her patients were suffering from the effects of years of poor lifestyle choices as well as genetic influences, she began to seek out ways to make a difference. She began with A4M (American Academy for Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine), earning certification through them, as well as through Cenegenics Institute in Nevada. Combining this new knowledge with her own love of physical fitness and athletics provided a wonderful structure and a new outlook for helping her patients. Making a move in Emergency Medicine, she was pleased to accept a position at MCG (now Georgia Regents University) as Assistant Professor in the Emergency Department where she teaches medical students and residents of Emergency Medicine. She also teaches first and second year medical students Problem Based Learning and Physical Diagnosis.
The opportunity came in 2013 to partner with others and create The Center for Modern Aging. Now she enjoys being able to provide a comprehensive age management program for her patients that encompasses weight management, assessment and direction in cardiovascular fitness, exercise, nutrition and optimization of hormones while working with others with the same passion.

Stevie Dement, MSM, DSR. – Outside sales, PR, and Corporate Relations; “Being a highly competitive athlete and salesman throughout most of my life has resulted in priorities. Nutrition, exercise and fitness, in addition to medically supervised hormone replacement, has played a significant role in my athletic achievements, both fighting professionally, on the most elite, world class level and participating in multiple solo and tandem triathlons throughout the southeast. My lifestyle, both professionally and personally, has benefited a great deal due to appropriate hormone replacement, diet, nutrition, goal setting, and realistic medical advisement.
Spending many years in the sales field I’ve learned that when I’m representing something that excites me I can’t help but get more and more involved. In my experience age management is a game changer. It really works. I’m the reigning Bronze medalist from the 2011 World Championships of Kickboxing and I’m 43 years old. I’m actual proof!
Many of us strive to maintain a lifestyle where we are fulfilled. We can help you to reach your lifestyle goals.”
