Celebrating 15 Years of Learning Languages


or the past fifteen years, The Language Institute in West Caldwell has created a world of opportunities for its students by helping them to learn new languages. The Language Institute teaches adults and children alike to develop the skills they need to be fluent in a new language, fulfilling the institute’s motto: “Don’t just study a language—speak it.” In celebration of their fifteenth anniversary, The Language Institute introduced a travel program, Italian Destinations, in partnership with Via del Vino Tours—launched by one of The Institute’s former students. In September, a small group embarked on a trip to the region of Puglia, in southern Italy. They explored the region through its food, wine, history, and culture. Highlights included an olive oil tasting, a mozzarella-making demo, a cooking class, Pizzica performance, and visits to artisan workshops—all while immersed in the language. The Language Institute offers private, semi-private, group lessons, and on-site classes in all languages, including ESL and American Sign Language. Their skilled instructors and expert tutoring have led the Language Institute to fifteen successful years.

FemTouch Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment Offers Quality of Life Improvements


urora DeJuliis, MD, medical director of European Medi-Spa in Montclair, has women of all ages talking about vaginal rejuvenation. Her FDA-approved FemTouch treatments are helping perimenopausal and menopausal women, women who’ve endured chemotherapy for breast and ovarian cancer, and those recovering from vaginal childbirth, enjoy having intercourse once again.

Dr. Aurora DeJuliis

FemTouch is a non-surgical, non-hormonal, painless, comfortable, five-minute, in-office procedure that remodels and rejuvenates the vaginal wall, increases blood flow and brings back moisture using CO2 laser beams. On average, women need three treatments, although most women see improvements after one session.

“Eighty percent of menopausal women undergo changes due to lack of estrogen, which affect vaginal health and cause vaginal dryness, itching, burning, changed PH levels, urinary stress incontinence, bleeding, difficult intercourse and frequent urinary infections,” she said. “Intercourse is important for vaginal health and FemTouch is improving the quality of life for women.”

Dr. Aurora DeJuliis, European Medi-Spa

One Year of Giving Back at A Sip of Art


n the summer of 2016, Efe Cierkowski opened her paint and sip studio, A Sip of Art, with a mission of giving back. She wanted a business that ignited creativity, inspiration, and the inner artist in us all while “doing good,” so each paint class gives back to the community. Since opening, the West Orange-based studio has donated a portion of public class and private party fees to local New Jersey non-profits, schools, and a few charities in Africa. Now celebrating its one-year anniversary, A Sip of Art has so far raised more than $8,000 in donations. The quote “To whom much is given, much is required” always resonated with Efe, so when Efe Cierkowski she left her corporate job to open a business, she knew it had to be philanthropic with a dash of fun. Opening A Sip of Art allowed her to leave her comfort zone and also give back to Saint Barnabas NICU, which sustained her preemie daughter Maya’s life for two month after birth. A Sip of Art donates a percentage of the fees for its public classes to Saint Barnabas NICU. When booking a private party, customers can choose from a list of charities (including PTAs) to receive a donation. Charities and organizations that have benefited this past year include: West Orange Relay for Life, Pink for Africa, and Adopt One Village.

people to know

Lou Lasalle Senior Vice President of Corporate External Affairs at RWJBarnabas Health


There are no small jobs when it comes to being charitable—every gesture, no matter how small helps and makes a difference.



Suburban Essex

November 2017

Photo by Dan Epstein


t may not seem like it right now, but there are still many people doing good in the world including Roseland resident Louis LaSalle. The Senior Vice President of Corporate External Affairs at RWJBarnabas Health is a staple at most local events where he’s always greeting guests with his contagious smile and energetic can-do attitude. While he’s been spreading kindness for the hospital for nearly 30 years, his charitable journey began in his childhood.

Why are you so charitable?

What groups are you involved in?

LaSalle: I learned the importance of being charitable at an early age. My father passed away leaving my mother to raise four youngsters alone. I once told her we were poor and she said we weren’t poor at all because we had a roof over our heads, clothes to wear and food to eat. She told me there were many people more in need than us and that charity begins at home.

LaSalle: I am currently a member of about 15 or so groups right now. I have been a member of hundreds over my lifetime. On average, I attend about 6-7 meetings and 2-4 events weekly, and am current involved with the following: • Chairman of the Roseland Borough Planning Board and President of the Essex County Parks Foundation

What are the most meaningful charitable situations you have been a part of and why?

• Board member of the North Essex Chamber of Commerce, Cerebral Palsy Advisory

LaSalle: I find all the work I do to be meaningful including what I do with the American Heart Association, Red Cross and Chambers of Commerce. However, my participation in two organizations that benefit socially- and economicallydeprived youths are near and dear to my heart. Steve Adubado’s Stand and Deliver program provides youths with communications tools, scholarships and more— putting them on equal footing with those who have a leg up when it comes to getting into college and becoming employed. Write on Sports offers sports writing camps led by professional journalists to middle-schoolers from low income communities. Seeing these youths having once-in-a lifetime opportunities and knowing how much their lives have been changed by these programs always moves me.

• A member of the Livingston Camuso Holiday Display Committee

How would you advise others to get involved in being charitable? LaSalle: I advise anyone who wants to get involved in helping others to just jump right in and do anything they can at any time. There are no small jobs when it comes to being charitable—every gesture, no matter how small, helps and makes a difference. I also advise picking a cause that means something to the volunteer. Having an emotional attachment to being charitable is a wonderful gift.

• Seton Hall University – Hazard Zet Forward Society • Matthew C. Sellitto Golf Committee • Newark Public Schools (Principal for a Day) • NFL Hall of Fame Foundation – Essex and Morris County Chapters, Essex County ELC • Boy Scouts of America – Health Care Dinner Committee

Lou’s past positions include: • Chairman of American Heart Association (54+ years), Essex County Chapter/ Metropolitan Chapter/ Northern NJ Region • Executive Leadership: Essex County Go Red for Women, Essex County Heart Walk, Essex County Affair of the Heart • Councilman of Borough of Roseland; Chairman of Essex County “Save Turtle Back Zoo Committee” • Chairman of Essex County Park Centennial Committee; VP of Millburn/Short Hills and Livingston Chambers of Commerce • Chairman of Roseland Vol. First Aid Squad Equipment Capital Campaign Committee and Roseland Library Capital Campaign.

Non-Stop Education: Estelle Finkel Center for Learning By Christine S. Maxwell, photo by Dan Epstein Margeuax Morial & Amanda Patrick


ducation does not stop at the bell. A learning service center dedicated to educating students from prekindergarten to adults, Estelle Finkel Center for Learning in Livingston provides continuous instruction. The Center is open seven days a week and with flexible scheduling designed to meet the needs of its clients. Estelle Finkel Center for Learning is part of the Horizons in Learning group, which also includes a summer camp, after-school enrichment, and a Saturday STEM program. Amanda Patrick, the owner and educational director, describes the offerings at the learning center as a “conciergelike” program. “Everything the students need to supplement their education is here under one roof,” she states. Established in 1984, the Center has prepared many thousands of students for academic success after high school. The Center’s solid reputation has led to successive generations of participants. “Parents who have attended Estelle Finkel Center for Learning are now sending their children here,” Patrick remarked. Patrick explained that the Center’s highly-individualized instruction is the key to the students’ academic success and is the basis for all academic offerings. Specific learning objectives are prepared for each student. This personalized course of study leads a structured pathway for each student’s achievement.

Estelle Finkel Center for Learning offers tutors in all subject areas as well as test prep: mathematics, sciences, language arts, foreign languages, all Advanced Placement courses and SAT and ACT prep as its core program. All tutors are experts in their fields and many have master’s degrees. Each student is matched carefully with an instructor to ensure maximum learning. Some students have studied with the same tutors for more than five years. In addition to tutoring, another popular program is their college entrance program: College Bound–a complete process for college selection, beginning with matching students to colleges, completing college applications, writing college essays, and resulting in acceptance into students’ chosen colleges. Special educational seminars are offered year-round to complement the ongoing, regular year-round programs. Upcoming events include a special three-part college planning series on weekday evenings later this winter. In addition, the next ACT/SAT test preparation class will be offered in December.

Joseph’s Limousine Service Offers Safety, Privacy & Comfort By Deborah Schapiro, photo by Dan Epstein


oe Mindo is not a mathematician, but he describes his business, Joseph’s Limousine Service, in terms of fractions: “25% of our business is airport trips, 25% is weddings and proms, another 25% is rides to concerts or sporting events, and the rest is miscellaneous–such as taking clients to meetings or a doctor’s appointment.” Mindo, who owns the Livingston-based company with his son, also named Joseph Mindo, points out that limousines are not the only options he offers. “We have 16 vehicles— everything from limos to Party Buses, Shuttle Buses, SUV’s and Town Cars—all equipped with the most up-to-date GPS technologies,” he states. Joe Mindo is proud of his loyal customer base. Many of his customers have been using his services since he opened for business back in 1990. The loyalty of his customers is due in part to the stability of his staff. Mindo notes, “We have six full-time drivers and around the same number of part-time drivers. Most of them have been with us for many years. Really, we have hardly any turnover, which is hard to find in this business.”

“With Uber and Lyft, you never know who your driver is going to be; it’s very impersonal. It may not even be safe in some instances.” — Joe Mindo, owner

Mindo believes that his customers appreciate seeing a familiar face behind the wheel when they enter one of his vehicles. He says, “With Uber and Lyft, you never know who your driver is going to be; it’s very impersonal. It may not even be safe in

Joey Mindo

some instances. All of my drivers have undergone thorough criminal and driver-safety background checks. But aside from that, most of my drivers are friends, or at least someone I have known in some capacity before hiring them.” As important as familiarity is dependability. Mindo says, “We are literally a 24/7 operation. We always show up when we say we will, and we are always on call for our customers.” These customers include several NBA stars and a former Miss America, as well as movie and TV production companies. Mindo proudly notes that one of his limousines appeared in the 1998 big screen hit You’ve Got Mail. His vehicles have also appeared in various scenes of past and current TV series. Movie and television appearances are fun, but they don’t distract Mindo from his main focus. He says, “We really appreciate all of our loyal customers. They are the reason we continue to do what we do. We look forward to driving them wherever they need to go in the future.”

Dental Implants Improve Appearance and Health A Permanent Solution for Tooth Loss By Martta Kelly

Dr. Yeh and Dr. Chiu


issing teeth can be problematic, not only in altering one’s appearance, but creating an environment for bacteria and causing other teeth to shift out of place. Dr. Helen Chiu, a dentist in Florham Park, has been practicing implant dentistry for more than 25 years and is a member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Implants are utilized to replace missing teeth. She explains:

Who is a candidate for dental implants?

Want to look and feel

your best?

Anyone who has lost a tooth, or teeth, due to fracture or periodontal disease. If a tooth is either decayed or cracked and no longer is sustained by a cap or crown, that tooth needs to be replaced by an implant.

What does the procedure entail and how long does the procedure take? The length of time depends on the particular case, whether it’s one tooth or multiple teeth, or if any other work, such as an extraction, needs to be done. Before the patients receives the actual implant, I meet with them to see how much work will be involved. X-rays are taken to determine the adequacy of the existing bone and tooth structure. All told, from start to finish, the work can take anywhere from 3 to 4 months or sometimes more.

What is the recovery time?

Find the Right Health and Wellness Professionals for You

Go to

Since the dental implant procedure is not invasive, patients are usually back in business after only a few days. Dr. Chiu recently remodeled her entire office to better serve patients’ needs and she has hired an associate, Arthur Yeh, DDS, a former patient of hers since he was 6 years old. Like Dr. Chiu, Dr. Yeh is committed to improving the health of his patients while helping them achieve beautiful smiles.

Freezing Away That Stubborn Fat By Janis Hashe


fter seeing the results from the Coolsculpting fat reduction method—and trying it on himself— Dr. Martin Maida, an MDVIP physician and owner of Livingston’s Center for Medical Weight Loss, decided to add it to the center’s services, says Pam Maida, certified Coolsculpting technician. “Coolsculpting is the #1 FDA-approved non-invasive way to reduce stubborn fat from areas such as the belly, upper arms, thighs, flanks, etc.,” she explains. “Coolsculpting freezes fat cells, causing them to die and be eliminated by the body. Most people see results in three weeks, as the fat gradually disappears,” she says. Each client receives a complimentary full body assessment, describing the process, how long the treatments take, and post-treatment procedures. “We also make suggestions based on the individual’s budget,” she says. “After a client begins treatment, we journal their progress. Coolsculpting is a wonderful option for both men and women.”

The First and Only Medical Cryotherapy Center in Montclair


hole Body Cryotherapy is the therapeutic application of extremely cold dry air (between -184°F and -260°F) to stimulate the body’s healing ability. Research indicates it reduces inflammation, boosts metabolism and speeds connective tissue growth. It is also used to treat sports injuries, joint disorders and chronic pain. Clients are submerged in cryogenic air for 2-3 minutes. The head remains exposed. After treatment many people experience a rush of endorphins and increased energy. Localized Cryotherapy is specifically geared towards a particular area to reduce pain and inflammation. Cryofacials use cooled air to penetrate the layers of the skin to boost collagen and elasticity. Revive is the only center in New Jersey with medically supervised treatments that combine products and programs to improve body composition and facial skin quality under the supervision of Dr. Vincent Giampapa, MD. Revive Body Mind Therapy also distributes state-of-the-art Cryotherapy equipment.

s a secondgeneration orthodontist with a practice known for innovation, Dr. Richard Newman of Newman Orthodontics was quick to adopt the most current scanning technology for the popular Invisalign clear aligner system. “The iTero scanner unit captures a digital impression of the teeth that is highly accurate and allows us to create a more precise fit of the clear aligners,” he says. “It’s more comfortable for the patient—and no more gooey mess from dental impressions.” Dr. Newman has been providing Invisalign treatment since 2000, and was one of the first to be certified in its use in the state. In addition to being designated as an Invisalign Premier Provider, Dr. Newman has completed the prestigious Invisalign Masters Program for advanced orthodontic specialists. He emphasizes that both adults and teens can greatly benefit from a new healthy and attractive smile. “For adults, there is no age limit. I’ve treated patients who were in their eighties,” he says.

1. MORE for your money 2. MORE amenities 3. MORE peace of mind

With the digital scanner, a new patient can be shown an “outcome simulation” of what their teeth will look like after the Invisalign course of treatment is concluded. “The initial scan takes less than 10 minutes,” he says. “The entire treatment is noninvasive and comfortable.” Once the patient begins treatment, the average treatment time is six to twelve months. “Our goal is making people happy and making beautiful smiles,” says Dr. Newman.

Dr. Newman received his orthodontic training at Columbia University and is the chairman of the orthodontic department of the NJ Institute for Craniofacial Surgery at St. Barnabas Medical Center.

The Silverstrom Group Honored at Great Oak Award Ceremony Photo by Dan Epstein


hilanthropy is blossoming in the Garden State, with companies of all sizes strengthening their communities through charitable work. The Silverstrom Group is the recipient of the 2017 Great Oak Award, recognized for its dedication on behalf of charitable causes and nonprofit organizations in New Jersey. The Great Oak Award honors businesses with strong Jersey roots and a deep commitment to charitable institutions and causes. The companies are pillars of their communities, and give in unique and impressive ways. The name Great Oak is emblematic of the companies that are honored, sturdy, deep rooted in the community, capable of impressive growth, and able to blend and change with the times. The Silverstrom Group is a perennial awardwinning practice in Livingston, with the latest technology, expert clinicians, and one of the few practices in New Jersey to house two ceramists, a laboratory, and specialists all under one roof. Serving the community for over 30 years, dentistry comes easy, however it is the people, not the practice who give them the most joy.

Dr. David Silverstrom, Dr. Amy Tran and Dr. Gary Silverstrom

“As part of the community we have a passion for giving, to advocate for those that can not do so for themselves, and to make a sustainable difference in the quality of life for those in our community,” says Dr. David Silverstrom.

eliminating the stigma associated with mental illness has been a lifetime passion for Dr. David.

“Our practice credo and philosophy has always been to have people leave our presence feeling better about themselves,” adds Dr. Gary Silverstrom. “It is just who we are.”

“As health care providers, we have a unique relationship with our patients and in the community that places us in a leadership position to assist those in need,” adds Dr. David.

In partnership with The American Cancer Society, The Silverstrom Group created The Smiles for Life Award, an annual $25,000 smile makeover to celebrate survivorship. Radiation therapy and chemotherapy often destroy the oral environment with tooth loss, decay and infection. “The smile makeover not only restores function and health, but self-esteem and confidence,” adds Dr. Amy Tran, “and who deserves to smile more than a cancer survivor!”

How does one measure the impact of kindness? For The Silverstrom Group, from their dental missions to remote areas of Guatemala, to their Halloween candy buy-back program, it is part of their culture.

In addition, The Silverstrom Group recognizes graduating seniors of Livingston High School by awarding nonacademic scholarships. The stipends recognize character and perseverance through the face of adversity and courage.

Get the Beautiful Smile You Always Wanted—in Less Time


ave you been putting off getting a crown or bridge because you don’t have the time for numerous dental appointments? Now, that no longer needs to be the case. You can have the beautiful smile you always wanted in less time! With the 3D intraoral scanner that Dr. Gary Krugman installed in his Livingston office, patients have a quick and comfortable experience when teeth impressions are needed for crowns, bridges, or implant crowns.

“I totally recommend getting impressions with the intraoral scanner. It was so easy! And Dr. Krugman was right, I did get beautiful, ‘picture perfect’ results!” —Susan M

What does this mean for patients? This means little or no adjustment of your crown, bridge, or implant crown as it is “picture perfect.” The scanner reduces the amount of time they will sit in the chair because there is no longer a need to wait for gloppy impressions to harden. Also, Dr. Krugman does not use uncomfortable trays in patients’ mouths.

With the use of the 3D intraoral scanner, Dr. Krugman receives better clinical results. Because of those results, it means less grinding to adjust the fit of a crown, bridge, or implant crown which will be more accurate to the shape of the patients’ mouth. Dr. Krugman can also show patients the images of their teeth and mouth through the scanner’s screen, which helps answer any questions the patient may have. Dr. Krugman and the team at Livingston Smiles are pleased to give their patients the best in state-of-the-art dental care that result in beautiful, longlasting smiles.

Diamond Minds

Landing a Job and Building a Career By, Barry Farber


he majority of my work consists of connecting and meeting with key decision makers. My clients ask me to help them target specific companies that have a strong fit for their products and services and then get them in the door to meet with the right contact.

4 Differentiate yourself. What makes you unique? How can you stand out from others? My daughter got strong written testimonials from her various summer jobs that she edited and put under each job description on her resume to stand out from other applicants.

Here are five keys I employ that can be applied to job seeking for college graduates.

5 “No” makes me go. Most sales people give up after their first or second “no,” yet many executives agree that most sales happen after the seventh or eighth rejection. If you believe there is a strong fit and you can add value to their business, go back to your targets with additional information or find other ways to get introduced. This shows them your passion and tenacity, something many companies see as a valuable asset these days.

1 Make a target list of the top 5-10 companies you would like to work for and where you feel you would add value. 2 Do your homework. There is so much information online about most companies. Search for the CEO of a specific company and read recent interviews and articles on that person before making your calls. Start at the top and work your way down to the person in charge of a specific department or responsibility. Also, seek out people who work in businesses that are similar to your targets and ask questions. 3 Network. Do what’s comfortable for you: use social media, speak with as many people as you can that have connections, join associations, and put yourself out there in a positive light. Go to for specific articles on networking and getting appointments.

Once you get the job, here are four great tips from Irv Rothman, president and CEO of Hewlett-Packard Financial Services and author of “Out-Executing the Competition.” Barry Farber: What advice would you give college graduates about getting their foot in the door with employers and then building value so they stay there and grow? Irv Rothman: Getting in the door is about patience and the ability to handle rejection, but once you’re there I have

four pieces of advice. Number one is never say no. BF: What do you mean by that?

Barry Farber

IR: If somebody asks you to do something you might not like or know how to do, or you’re afraid to fail, don’t say “no” or “I don’t know how to do that.” The correct answer is, “This isn’t something I’m familiar with but I will find out how to do it and I will deliver a quality product to you.” And then you have to work on actually doing that. The second piece of advice is, always work for somebody you can learn something from, at any stage of your career. Even for me today, I’m still learning something new every day and that’s a very stimulating environment. Third, take an assignment that nobody else wants. Demonstrate your commitment and that you can really add value, even if it means you have to move some place or out of your comfort zone. The forth piece of advice that I think is very important, especially in today’s extraordinarily complex world is that you really have to learn how to operate well within a team structure.
