Their focus is reviewing our methodology (how we select a “Top Doctor” and/or “Top Dentist”) and approving our process.

About Us


et’s face it…

Everyone wants to know more about the dentist they are considering. While personal recommendations are certainly valuable, most people want to know about a dentist’s credentials and experience as well. That’s where NJ Top Dentists comes in. “Patients essentially meet their dentist in our magazine or on our site before they even schedule their appointment,” says Cristina Mendez, Director of Marketing & Client Relations. “The custom provider webpages on our website answer the most frequently asked patient questions, all in one convenient resource.” To be featured in the magazine and/or profiled on the site, each dentist must qualify and is extensively screened and approved. These providers were chosen based on a number of criteria, including but not limited to: • • • • • •

Verified dental licenses and credentials Years in practice Review of malpractice insurance Continuing education requirements Patient reviews Awards and accomplishments

“Peer-to-peer selection is not used in our process. Each dentist featured has earned approval based on merit,” says Ms. Mendez. So take a look for yourself. While all the dentists listed in the approved directory have passed NJ Top Dentists’ rigorous review, many of the providers also have an advertorial in the magazine and/or custom webpages online. Custom client webpages detail a provider’s education, training, services provided, hours of operation, insurance information and more invaluable info. NJ Top Dentists is a division of USA Top Docs, which features approved Top Doctors and Dentists. For more information or to submit an application to be reviewed, please visit: • •

fter graduating from UMDNJ, Dr. Laurence C. Breiterman went on to study at the prestigious L.D. Pankey Institute, a postgraduate dental-education center. Since that time, he has been recognized for his life-altering dental procedures and earned numerous accolades. In 2012, he received the Lifelong Service Recognition award, an honor held by fewer than 250 dentists worldwide. He is on the list of America’s Top Dentists for Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry. Former New Jersey governor Jon Corzine has praised him for his contributions to the dental field. Dr. Breiterman is also

a member of many elite organizations, including the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and American Dental Association, and is a master of the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Breiterman has participated in more than 3,000 hours of continuing-education courses, far exceeding the minimum yearly requirement. All of this additional studies have helped him integrate new beneficial techniques and equipment into his practice. “In the last several years, we have introduced LANAP, a laser gum surgery that is the only FDA-approved surgery that can actually reverse gum and bone loss from periodontal disease,” he explains. “It

requires no cutting or stitching and the postoperative healing period is usually about 24 hours. Compared to the more traditional approach, which can take weeks, this is truly innovative.” Dr. Breiterman has introduced into his practice a similar gum grafting technique called Gum Rejuvenation as well as the Planmeca E4D scanning and milling system. Gum Rejuvenation can reverse receding gums without cutting or stitching, leaving patients with a quick healing time. The Planmeca E4D creates crowns simply by scanning teeth on a computer, allowing for better control. Dr. Breiterman is most proud of his practice’s experience and expertise in

evaluating and treating the entire mouth. He and his staff help patients who are dissatisfied with their smiles and make their teeth look spectacular. “We don’t look at teeth in isolation, but instead treat the mouth as a singular unit,” he says. “With new patients, we examine the teeth and gums, but we also examine the occlusion (bite) and TMJ (temporomandibular joint). We look at the way teeth fit together and we also look at the esthetics of the smile. We are able to treat gum disease conservatively with laser gum surgery and can replace missing teeth with implants as part of an overall design to rebuild and rejuvenate smiles.” Other services offered by Advanced Dental Techniques are implant and surgery restorations, periodontics, endodontics, oral surgery, laser dentistry, sedation dentistry, invisible braces and facial cosmetics. Prospective patients can view before-and-after photos of Dr. Breiterman’s work at www. case-studies.html. “Advanced Dental Techniques is essentially a one-stop shop for patients where we provide all the necessary tools to achieve their dream smile, from effective case planning to gum surgery, implants, TMJ treatments and restorative care,” says Dr. Breiterman. Patients return to Advanced Dental Techniques not only because of the excellent treatments they receive, but also for the way Dr. Breiterman and his staff make them feel welcomed and comfortable. “Our office stands out from most because of the way we interact with patients,” he says. “We listen to what they want and try to respect their

Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey


s one of the top-rated cosmetic dental facilities in the state, Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey provides patients with an unparalleled experience: top-ofthe-line services and an outstanding staff in a one-stop facility. It’s the reason Drs. Edward Romano and Matthew Vaccaro are able to see so many patients daily. They have made their setting a tranquil environment where people can feel at ease while receiving treatments. The staff at Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey speaks multiple languages to ensure every patient receives the appropriate attention. “Our staff goes above and beyond to meet and exceed patients’ expectations,” they say. “They go out of their way to help patients not only understand their treatments, but also the very difficult task of working with the dental benefit plan. We care deeply about our patients feeling comfortable and knowledgeable about the care they are receiving.” Drs. Romano and Vaccaro have been inducted into elite organizations such as the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry and the TriCounty Dental Society. Dr. Romano was the past president of the New Jersey chapter of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Both doctors participate in continuing education to learn about new technologies that could benefit their patients. “I stay abreast of the new techniques and technology in dentistry by forever being a student,” says Dr. Romano. “I attend many hours of continuing education every year, far above the minimum required by the state. Further, I share

“Patients are comfortable knowing that we are attending to them in the safest possible way,” says Dr. Romano. Drs. Romano and Vaccaro strive to instill good dental hygiene so their patients can remain healthy in between visits. They say the most important routine to follow is rinsing, brushing and flossing, then rinsing again with mouthwash twice a day. Patients should schedule a minimum of two dental hygiene visits per year. Many dentists and hygienists have their teeth professionally cleaned three to four times a year. “Periodontal or gum disease has been shown to be linked to heart attacks, stroke and blood-vessel disease,” they say. It’s also known to increase the risk of head, neck, pancreatic and kidney cancer as well as Alzheimer’s disease. “Our philosophy is to deliver the best dental care in a friendly, modern facility. It’s what enables our patients to live with optimal oral health all their lives,” they say.

I teach advanced dental techniques and cosmetic dentistry.” Dr. Vaccaro is an attending dentist at the Morristown Medical Center as well. Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey offers a variety of cosmetic and reconstructive services. These include smile makeovers, teeth whitening, inlays and onlays, laser gum recontouring, implants, bridges and crowns, and sedation and laser dentistry. The doctors provide an online Smile Gallery filled with beautiful before-andafter photos so future patients can gauge their work. You can take a look by visiting “We offer many other beneficial services to our patients such as screening for oral cancer and HPV virus,” they say. “Our radiographs use the lowest amount of x-ray exposure, up to 90 percent less than traditional x-ray radiography.” Both dentists agree that being able to handle all phases of dentistry in one location is a major asset. There’s never a need for a patient to transfer to a different facility. “We have specialists on staff so we do not have to send patients away to other offices,” says Dr. Romano. “With specialists in the office, we can cotreatment plan with them and deliver optimal care tailored to each patient. Not all patients need specialty care, but isn’t it great to know your doctor is there with you through the whole process?” Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey has board-certified anesthesiologists who provide only anesthesia, a specialty service not many practices offer.

t Cuozzo Orthodontics in Lincroft and Sea Girt, Dr. Patrick T. Cuozzo creates beautiful smiles while providing the finest orthodontic experience for people of all ages. “We do this by taking a conservative approach to orthodontics,” he says, “which centers on beginning treatment at the right time. Our goal is to have each patient in treatment for the shortest amount of time at the lowest cost. We find that young patients and parents alike greatly appreciate this.” Transitioning to braces can be a great source of anxiety. As a father of four, Dr. Cuozzo knows how to help counter that feeling. His waiting area is outfitted with the latest video games to help take patients’ minds off their appointment, and friendly staff members make people feel comfortable the moment they walk through the door. “One of the prime goals of our practice is to make each patient feel welcome, well informed and comfortable,” says Dr. Cuozzo. “We strive to ensure that we understand the concerns of our patients and are meeting their needs, including their desire to stay on schedule.” To remind patients of appointment times, Cuozzo Orthodontics sends confirmations and reminders by email or text message. “We feel our patients’ time is just as important as ours, and we pride ourselves on keeping our appointments running punctually so our patients can return to their day-to-day activities as soon as possible,” Dr. Cuozzo says. He’s received many accolades for his work, including the Timothy O. Heartwole Chair for Ethical Standards and

Insight digital tooth movement. He also utilizes an innovative 3D x-ray system. This high-tech equipment allows him to obtain a clearer and more precise image of a patient’s teeth, leading to quicker and more efficient diagnoses. “I believe that a healthy smile sets a person up for success,” he says. “Not only is it essential to your physical health and comfort to maintain good oral hygiene, but clean, healthy teeth and gums also allow you to feel confident.” Dr. Cuozzo wants parents to know that he and his staff care deeply about their patients’ oral and overall health. It’s why he’s developed strong relationships with everyone who comes to his office. “When a person is confident, they are able to make important social connections, which enable them to develop lasting relationships and, in turn, boost their self-esteem,” says Dr. Cuozzo. “When you feel good about yourself, you are able to be the very best person you can be.”

He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, a member of the American Association of Orthodontics and an advisor to the Jersey Coast Dental Forum. He also frequently contributes to the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. Dr. Cuozzo is not the only person at his practice to participate in continuing education. His entire staff does so too. “We attend various dental and orthodontic seminars across the country throughout the year,” he says. “Our team is able to meet with representatives from some of the leading dental-technology companies.” During these conferences, the entire staff at Cuozzo Orthodontics becomes familiar with the latest and newest technologies and modalities to outfit their office with. “Seeing new products in person, viewing demonstrations and getting to try them out allow us to decide what technology will be the most beneficial to our patients,” says Dr. Cuozzo. Both of his offices have state-of-theart equipment that allow patients to have fewer appointments. Says Dr. Cuozzo: “Whether it’s early observation appointments to monitor tooth eruption of young patients, preventative treatments that ensure proper tooth and mouth development, or cosmetic treatments to improve a smile, each is important to a patient’s overall confidence, health and well-being.” Among the advaced technologies that he offers are computerized charting, digital models, digital x-rays, Itero digital impressions, Invisalign and Ortho

They are looking to add CAD CAM technology, intraoral scanners, cone beam CT scans and soft/hard tissue lasers. They constantly review recent literature and participate in continuing-education courses to learn about the benefits of these and other tools. Both doctors agree that their comprehensive diagnosis and treatment planning are crucial to patient success. “From an accurate medical history to oral habits, we diagnose and treat accordingly,” they say. “From prophylaxis, restorative treatment, removal of pathology or replacing teeth with implants, how can someone identify which is most important?

Braces for Children and Adults Invisalign® and Invisalign® Teen (Elite Provider)

aving worked as a biomedical engineer prior to becoming a dentist, David Caggiano, DMD, MS, is uniquely qualified to evaluate and leverage the latest advances in the field. “The technology behind braces is changing rapidly. These tools help me engineer customized treatment programs in the most efficient and comfortable way possible,” he says. “The difference between braces today and even just a few years ago is dramatic. Today’s high-tech orthodontists should be using self-ligating braces with bodyheat-activated wires, goop-free impression computers, 3D x-rays, computerized brace placement and lasers and inoffice 3D printers, to name a few of the advancements.” The benefits of these technologies are faster and more accurate outcomes requiring fewer appointments and greater patient comfort. In addition to his technical skills, Dr. Caggiano takes pride in his patientfriendly office and the positive unsolicited Google reviews he consistently receives. Although most believe that braces are only for children, Dr. Caggiano is here to tell patients that it is never too late to fix

your teeth. “No patient is ever too old for orthodontics,” he says. “Thirty percent of my patients are adults. However, we like to see kids as young as 8 years old because if I have a chance to intervene, there is minimal need to really take out any adult teeth while having braces anymore.” Dr. Caggiano is passionate about the quality services he delivers (including Invisalign, as he is deemed an “elite provider” of the clear aligners) as well as the psychological and physiological benefits straight teeth offer. “Having straight teeth makes it easier to clean your teeth, avoids wearing your teeth away, and promotes healthy gums and, of course, better esthetics.” He makes it a point to stay abreast of the new findings in dental health to ensure he offers the best services possible. Dr. Caggiano attends multiple continuingeducation courses per year, belongs to numerous national study clubs and constantly reads medical material. “We take pride in the double meaning hinted at in our tagline: ‘You’ll love the way we make you smile.’ When done with your treatment, you will love your new smile, but we will also make you smile at each appointment along the way.”

he motto at Carcara Orthodontics is “committed to caring for your smile.” Dr. Salvatore J. Carcara and his highly trained staff prioritize quality treatments, a high patient satisfaction rate and personal comfort. All are integral to the success of their practice. “We treat each patient as a unique individual with unique needs,” says Dr. Carcara. “We develop a custom smile design that matches their face both for today and as they age.” Dr. Carcara knows that having a perfect smile doesn’t just boost self-esteem in patients, but also allows for better oral hygiene, which in turn helps reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath. He states that proper alignment is crucial because it helps with chewing food, allows for greater clarity when speaking, reduces the risk of dental injuries and prevents abnormal wear on enamel. “Because of the many health and dental benefits of orthodontic treatment and the many advances in early interceptive orthodontic treatment for children to help prevent adult malocclusion, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends every child should have an initial evaluation by a specialist at the age of 7,”

Dr. Carcara says. “A common misconception is that parents need to wait for a referral from their dentist to bring their child for an orthodontic evaluation,” he says. “Patients do not need a referral to schedule a complimentary orthodontic consultation in our office.” He advises parents to bring their child in sooner rather than later, as he monitors the growth and development of children’s teeth and jaws. Once any orthodontic concerns arise, he advises parents about the correct time for treatment. Dr. Carcara remains on the cutting edge of orthodontics by “remaining a perpetual student.” He attends continuing-education courses and studies different technologies and techniques that benefit his patients. Dr. Carcara never implements a new tool just because it is hot on the market; he uses it only when it’s proved useful for his patients. “I develop customized treatments utilizing technology such as Itero digital impressions and digital imaging to create computer-designed Insignia custom braces and Invisalign clear aligners,” he says. “In doing so, we have seen reduced treatment times, more comfortable treatment and an enhanced treatment experience.”

graduate of the prestigious Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Helen P. Chiu has been in practice for more than 25 years at her office in Florham Park. With her extensive knowledge, she has developed long-lasting relationships with patients and had the pleasure of treating multiple generations of families. Dr. Chiu knows many people fear visiting the dentist, which is why she provides a relaxing and calming atmosphere to help ease patients’ anxieties. “In my office, we do not rush any procedures,” she says, noting that rushing is often associated with anxiety. “If a patient cannot get numb or a procedure is running late, we will delay or cancel rather than rush through the procedure.” Patients can receive a variety of treatments including 3D scans, cosmetic transformations, surgical and restorative implant dentistry, root-canal treatments, surgical and nonsurgical gum treatments, family and children’s dentistry, reconstructive dentistry, Invisalign and after-hour on-call emergency services. She is never out of reach if a patient needs her. “Due to my multifaceted involvement in different specialties in dentistry, I offer a very integrated approach to help patients

Her staff is not only friendly and inviting, but also knowledgeable so they can answer any questions patients may have. “I am in the business of helping people,” she says. “Good dental service means different things to different people. To one person, it may be a thorough cleaning; to another, it may be a complete smile makeover. I am here to offer a complete range of services to help each patient achieve that goal.” To help her office stay on top of emerging technologies, Dr. Chiu travels throughout the country attending continuing-education seminars. Taking things a step further, she also participates in online dental forums and conventions to stay knowledgeable of the latest equipment. “One should be willing to invest in the technologies and properly implement them into the practice,” she says.

His office is equipped with many beneficial technologies including VELscope for oral-cancer screenings, motion testing techniques to evaluate TMJ pain, digital radiography and photography, and Spectra Doppler Immunofluorescence, which helps in early detection of dental decay. Patients who visit Dr. Coyle also receive general and preventative dentistry, TMJ therapy, nightguards for Bruxism, snoring and sleep-apnea therapy, CEREC crowns, root canals, dentures and partials, dental implants and full-mouth reconstructions. “The continuing-care appointments we provide are the foundation for improving patients’ overall general health with the added benefit of enhancing the esthetics of their smiles,” he adds.

t Dr. Dennis G. Coyle’s practice in Madison, he and his staff members carry out their golden rule: to treat patients as if they were guests in their home. By following this mantra, Dr. Coyle is able to listen to patients’ concerns, educate them about their oral health, come up with financial solutions and arrange appointments with other specialists if needed. “I am very passionate about the practice of dentistry, as is the rest of my team,” says Dr. Coyle. To provide the appropriate care, Dr. Coyle performs an initial consultation where he spends a half hour of one-on-one time to review medical history and gain insight into the patient’s expectations and treatment goals. “This one-on-one exchange develops the mutual trust necessary for successful treatment,” he explains. “The first appointment sets the tone for welcoming the patient to a caring environment.” For example, Dr. Coyle helped a patient regain confidence with her smile after she suffered a stroke that left her with loosened teeth. He developed a customized treatment plan to restore both her upper and lower arches with dental implants.

Specializing in general and cosmetic dentistry, he and his warm, inviting staff have established a welcome atmosphere to make a visit to his offices as comfortable and pleasant as possible. “Patients are treated with our complete attention one at a time. We do not double book our schedule, which would be disrespectful of our patients’ time,” says Dr. Ditta. “With the assistance of our highly motivated staff, I provide an on-time appointment schedule.” Dr. Ditta’s state-of-the-art office enables him to provide valuable services to ensure patients overcome dental maladies in a timely fashion. His office complies with both CDC and OSHA standards, so patients know they are in an excellent environment from the moment they walk through the door. “I stay abreast of the latest technology and research by attending study groups and continuing-education classes and reading the latest journals in the dental field,” he says.

It’s part of the reason Dr. Ditta is able to provide the most up-to-date tools for patients such as digital x-rays, veneers, Snap-on Smile, crowns, sports mouth guards, root canals and retreatments, occlusal adjustments, oral-surgery procedures, implant restorations and Bruxism appliance. Along with making routine visits to the dentist, Dr. Ditta urges that patients be serious about oral health at home because neglect can impact your overall well-being. “Besides the pain that can result, it can lead to malnutrition, local and systemic infection, which can lead to disease,” he warns. “Patients who suffer from cosmetic issues also may find themselves withdrawn from personal and professional relationships due to embarrassment.” Dr. Ditta wants his patients to know that whether it’s a cosmetic issue or generaldentistry issue, he is ready to provide whatever they need. For general oral hygiene problems, he suggests a daily routine that includes brushing, flossing and fluoride rinses to help prevent unnecessary damage and keep teeth strong. If patients maintain good oral hygiene outside the office, regular dental examinations will detect disease in its early stages, making it more manageable.

and surgery. Asked to identify his most beneficial service, Dr. Theodorou says, “Simply, a good dental exam. By giving a good dental exam, many potential problem areas can be identified and treated prior to becoming an issue.” Dr. Theodorou’s “regular” patient examination includes a potentially life-saving component: an oral-cancer screening. “Although rare, oral cancer has the potential to be a very serious and sometimes fatal disease,” he says. “If it is caught early, it is often quite treatable.” Dr. Theodorou has helped change the lives of many patients, including a young lady who suffered from bulimia at a young age. Her disease left her with broken-down top teeth that were much shorter than they should be as well as almost no protective enamel on the backs of her teeth. “By putting all porcelain crowns on the teeth, I was able to restore them to natural function and greatly improve the esthetics of her smile,” says Dr. Theodorou. “When I took her finished photos, her smile was beaming and showed her beautiful teeth. When I showed her the initial photos before treatment, she commented that she always tried to cover up her teeth when smiling.”

At each follow-up visit, he points out any areas that his patient may be having difficulty cleaning and reviews the steps to better dental care. He also asks parents to check their children’s mouths to make sure they are correctly cleaning their teeth. Kids Dental Kare has state-of-the-art equipment, including digital x-rays that give off less radiation and provide larger images to detect tooth decay earlier. Of particular importance to patients is his 24/7 emergency contact services, which ensures they are never out of touch if tooth trouble arises. “This helps our patients feel they can always rely on us,” he says.

He avoids using language that might trigger panic (think needle, shot or drill). “We strive to make each visit memorable for children in a positive way,” he says.

He doesn’t know me, and he offered to fix my teeth for free.” Luzzo continued to say, “He changed my life in many ways, more than just a smile. He gave me confidence and strength that I need to make a living for me and my family. I can go out into public with a perfect smile from ear to ear with no shame whatsoever.” To continue helping patients rebuild oral health, Dr. Maddalena stays on top of new trends in the field by attending continuing-education courses and meeting with different pharmaceutical representatives from dental companies.

ince 1984, Dr. Louis J. Maddalena has been providing state-of-theart dental care at his practice in East Hanover. With personal ties to the Morris County area, he strives to improve the oral health of his neighbors every day. “The mouth is the area of the body that shows many disease processes that could affect the well-being of patients,” he says. “If your teeth are not maintained properly, it could cause digestive problems. In the elderly, this can be extremely important because it can cause malabsorption.” Dr. Maddalena believes that improving oral hygiene can lead to a better life, which is why he is so adamant on helping his patients regain and maintain health. In one instance, Dr. Maddalena restored a patient’s smile after disease overwhelmed his teeth. “Tristan was a premature baby and, as a result, he had syndromically small teeth,” he recalls. “Coordination of treatment between periodontist, orthodontist and myself resulted in implants and spacing of teeth to prepare for full-mouth rehabilitation. The outstanding result was life changing for this now 20-year-old man.” In another instance, Dr. Maddalena offered to repair the teeth of an ex-Navy

Patients are often pleasantly surprised to learn they have options to get through a procedure in a more comfortable manner.” Prospect Oral Surgery Center has passed New Jersey State Board of Dentistry’s inspection to perform officebased anesthesia. It also caters to seniors’ special medical and dental needs, as Monroe Township has many retiree communities. “You are treated as a person here, not a number,” says Dr. Hung.

She is one of the first 50 dentists in the country to be able to offer this service same-day thanks to the new technology she invested in. “One of our most convenient services is the single crown visit,” she says. “Time is important to our patients. Traditionally, a crown would require a messy impression, a temporary crown and a two-week turnaround before the final crown is delivered.” With the Cerec system, Dr. Rangel can mill the crowns directly in her office. Patients love the quick restoration time. She also offers preventative cleanings, periodontal scalings, Invisalign, implant restorations, crowns and bridges, Zoom! in-office whitening, root-canal therapy, dentures, TMJ treatments, sleep apnea and snoring appliances, veneers and oralcancer screenings. “My philosophy is to treat patients as I would want to be treated,” she says. “Whether it is treating someone in pain or someone who wants a cosmetic makeover, we work with the patient to come up with their ideal treatment plan.”

We are happy to see everyone, but we believe we possess the skills to treat all patients, regardless of their dental need.” Through years of training and handson experience, both doctors have learned the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene and its indispensability to patients’ overall health. No less important, they say, are a good diet and daily cleaning routines. “All patients should be looking in the mirror when they brush and do a quick examination of their oral cavity to make sure there aren’t any changes to the color of the gums or cheeks, and to look for spots which do not look normal,” says Dr. Berry. “A 20-second self oral-cancer exam can be hugely beneficial.

They strive to provide the most beneficial comprehensive treatment plans and dental services for adults and children with a focus on family, pediatric, sedation and cosmetic dentistry. “We do everything to make patients feel comfortable,” they say. “Our staff has been with us for more than 15 years and we are a family.

r. Arthur G. Scheiner has been helping patients in the Westfield area with quality and affordable dental care for more than two decades. His facility boasts state-of-the-art technologies such as the newest CEREC system—a computer combined with a 3D milling machine that produces porcelain crowns and onlays for patients in a single office visit. “At most offices, patients have to make two visits to finalize crowns or onlays, which means they must wear weaker temporary crowns in between visits,” he explains. “Since these temporary crowns are weaker, they can fall out, causing additional office visits for the patient.” With the help of his associate Dr. Suzanne Lorino, he is able to offer more advanced treatments such as cosmetic dentistry, Botox and dermal fillers. Dr. Lorino received her certification from the esteemed American Academy of Facial Esthetics. “Seeing the smile on the patients’ faces when they walk out with an amazing cosmetic result” is the greatest part of Dr. Scheiner’s job, he says. As his patients will attest, his commitment to high-quality dentistry is unquestioned. EDUCATION + TRAINING University of Pennsylvania UMDNJ Residency at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital

r. Eugene A. Isola, III understands that not all of his patients are the same, even if they have a similar dental problem. It’s the reason he offers alternative solutions. “I am here to treat my patients with top quality care but at the same time try to really pay attention to their specific needs and details to make their experience here unique,” he says. “We work with patients to gain a lifelong relationship. Ours is not a one-time revolving-door experience.” As an associate professor at Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Isola has the opportunity to experience hands-on research and attends lectures every week to gain insight into the latest trends in the industry. He then utilizes this new knowledge to integrate the most beneficial tools and techniques into his practice. He strives to provide “five-star” services such as convenient appointment times, weekend availability and an automated reminder system that sends emails and texts. “I also take pride in a well-trained staff that is always confidential, compassionate and courteous.”

o it once and do it right” is the watchword of Dr. Robert S. Rosenfeld, who has been practicing for more than 30 years, the last 23 at Rosenfeld Dental Studio in Westwood. He’s spent his career pursuing clinical excellence. Dr Rosenfeld’s care ranges from simple tooth-colored fillings, to cosmetic makeovers, to full-mouth reconstructions, depending on a patient’s needs. His treatment is tailored to each patient’s circumstances and they always receive the time and attention required without feeling rushed. Unfortunately, the average patient is unable to gauge the quality of their dental work. Therefore it is noteworthy that many dental professionals who can judge the quality of dental work, seek treatment from Dr. Rosenfeld. He takes many times the required continuing education hours, keeping him abreast of the latest techniques and materials, and has a Key Opinion Leader (KOL) relationship with several dental manufacturers. He lectures to practicing dentists on topics in restorative dentistry, and teaches at the Dental Residency program at Hackensack University Medical Center. Dr. Rosenfeld has published articles in various dental journals (domestic and international), and was inducted as a Fellow in the International Academy of Dental Facial Esthetics.

full-body workout paired with intense tunes to get you moving. There’s a reason why many celebrities such as Demi Lovato, Kelly Ripa and Lady Gaga love SoulCycle. This 45-minute sweat session includes a warmup, high-intensity cardio and cool-down period. Set in a dimly lit room with candles for ambiance and an upbeat instructor, you will burn off those calories while having fun.

VIXEN WORKOUT With Vixen, ladies can dance their way to a leaner body. According to their website, new members burn around 400-600 calories, while frequent members burn up to 1,000 calories in a 60-minute workout. Vixen Workout resembles a nightclub to help get ladies in the mood to dance. Instructors teach using intense music, while ladies follow along toning their muscles in an upbeat setting. Who said working out couldn’t be fun?

CLUB PILATES If you’re looking for a workout that is more zen but don’t want to do yoga, try Club Pilates, an exercise class that strengthens your core muscles. At Club Pilates, you get only the best: varied class times and instructors who go through 500 hours of training. Designed for both men and women, Club Pilates targets your abdominals and spine utilizing quality equipment, which leads to better overall control of your body. There are different levels of Club Pilates, making it accessible for everyone.

AERIAL SILK CLASSES Aerial Silk classes have become increasingly popular in the last couple of years. The workout takes place on a Silk, an elongated fabric piece that hangs from the ceiling. The workout, which includes learning how to perform moves in the air utilizing the Silk, strengthens your muscles and loosens limbs for a leaner physique. Aerial Silk classes also increase your flexibility and coordination. You will be giving the Cirque du Soleil cast a run for their money.

Okay, first the bad news. It’s winter. The polar vortex has started its chilling swirl, ushering in the season of extra layers, big boots and snowed-in cars that can be an absolute bear to deal with. (And not the warm, fuzzy, hibernating kind either.) The good news is we have your winter escape all planned out for you. So grab your skis and loved ones and hit the slopes. These resorts have everything you’ll need to get in touch with your inner adventurer. Or stay close to the hot tub. It’s your call: we’re not judging either way.

Activities abound: dogsledding, elk refuge sleigh rides, cross-country skiing, hot springing, snow biking, Yellowstone tours, snowmobiling and much more.

What is infinitesimally tiny, manufactured by personal-hygiene brands and descends down drainpipes into lakes, rivers and oceans by the billions every day? The answer may surprise you. Small pieces of plastic with an innocuous sounding nickname, microbeads add color and texture to facial scrubs, body wash and toothpaste. They recently have come under increased scrutiny. While states have banned them for the pollution they cause in waterways—the beads do not disintegrate and are not biodegradable—dentists are now sounding the alarm for the damage they can cause in mouths. In early 2014, dental hygienist Trish Walraven started noticing tiny bits of blue-green plastic lodged under patients’ gums and between their teeth. She wrote about it on her blog, DentalBuzz. “Polyethylene plastic is in your toothpaste for decorative purposes only,” she wrote. “This is unacceptable not only to me, but to many, many hygienists nationwide.
