Meet the Team

JOSIE CALISE
Office Manager/ Personal Assistant/Team Mom and More

HPDO has been Josie’s home for the last 14 years. Working with children and their families has been a fun, fulfilling, and a fascinating experience. Kids say the funniest things and she loves their honesty. Josie also has the pleasure of getting to know the wonderful parents in our practice, and especially enjoys trading stories and tips about how best to raise our teenagers (if there is such a thing). She loves to ski, enjoys watching her Lakers & Cowboys play, loves to shop (just ask Lyndon, her husband). Most of all she loves being a mom to Joey & Cody!


MARINA MURGO
Accounts Manager

Marina has been in the dental field for thirty five years…the last 15 years with Dr. Hersch.  She is an account manager. She loves it because, although she just became a grandma, she’s still really a “kid at heart”. She enjoys relaxing with a good book, shopping, raising her animals, and spending time with family; especially her teen son Jacob.
