Phil Ross and Survival Strong

#HipNJ’s Lisa Maria Latino sat down with Phil Ross, author of Survival Strong, to discuss his new book.

Survival Strong provides the ultimate guide to protecting yourself and your loved ones. Ross incorporates his background and life experiences to help his audience learn how to become more alert. As Ross explains, “you can never let your guard down, and it doesn’t make you paranoid. It just makes you aware”. Everybody will gain something from this book that will be beneficial to their daily lives.

Ross is also offering once a week classes in his studio to go along with the Survival Strong program. This class consists of bodyweight technique and defensive tactics. Additionally, Ross has certified several Physical Education teachers at Dwight Englewood High School as well as four other schools locally.

Celebrate National Tooth Fairy Day With These Unique NJ Dentists

By Ryan Hickey

Today is #NationalToothFairyDay! To celebrate, #HipNJ has compiled a list of some of the most unique dentists throughout the Garden State!

  1. Starship Pediatric Dentistry (Madison)

Dr. Sky Berdahl started the practice not only to subtract fear and add fun to any child’s trip to the dentist, but to make one of his childhood dreams become reality. That dream: to become a pediatric dental astronaut. Check out HipNJ’s coverage above!

  1. Wayne Gangi, DDS (Clifton)

This dentist is a favorite among the residents of Clifton because every Halloween he decorates his front lawn with a tremendous amount of scary decorations.

  1. Lieberman & Jain Orthodontics (Saddle Brook)


This dentist doubles as an accomplished photographer. The waiting room is filled with examples of his work. You can travel around the world without leaving this NJ office.

  1. Kurpis Center For Advanced Dentistry (Ridgewood)

If you get some dental work done here, there is a chance you might just end up on their popular YouTube channel with nearly 1,000 subscribers. Check them out if you want to see their finest work.

  1. Shore Children’s Dental Care (Manasquan)

Head over to this dentist for a trip under the sea! Complete with an aquarium fish tank and a shore themed office, you’ll forget you’re at the dentist for shore!
