Meet the Staff

At the core of our dental practice is a friendly team of professionals that are dedicated to your utmost comfort and optimal oral health.  We view each patient as a unique individual, and tailor each treatment to your specific needs.  As part of our commitment to providing close, personalized attention to every patient, we want to encourage patient communication.  Please know that we are here to provide outstanding patient care, and that we value the trust you have placed in us.



I am a 1982 graduate of Fairleigh Dickenson University School of Dental Hygiene. I have many years experience, and have always made my patients’ comfort and  oral health needs my number one priority. Working with Dr. Micale and his amazing staff since 2011, I have gotten to know our patients and I’m always looking forward to seeing them at future visits. I was also fortunate enough to take over for Dodie, who had a very similar philosophy and took pride in her patient care as well.


When I am not working, I enjoy exercising, walking my dog, Honey, and spending time with my family, especially visiting my daughter Nicole and son Brian.


Dodie (Retired)

As a committed dental health professional, I have been a part of this office for 43 years and am known as Dodie by our patients. I am passionate about my profession and I consider each of the patients a member of my extended dental family. It has been a privilege and honor to help these individuals, including four generations of two families, maintain excellent oral health.


Born in New Jersey, I graduated from Jonathan Dayton Regional High School in Springfield. My college days were spent in West Virginia at West Liberty State University, where I graduated from the SW Glass Department of Dental Hygiene.


In 2011, I was chosen as one of eight dental hygienists nationwide to receive the Sunstar Award of Distinction for excellence in and dedication to the profession. I keep current on new technologies, techniques, treatments, and trends by attending continuing education courses and keeping active in the NJ State and National Dental Hygiene Associations.


In my free time, I am an active volunteer with the Friends Committee of the Visiting Nurses Association and Bonafides in the Basking Ridge area, raising funds for local charities and individuals in need.



Dental Assistants



Judi I.

I have worked as a Dental Assistant for over 25 years and have been with Dr. Micale and his staff since 1999. I received my Dental Radiology license at Middlesex County College. My goal at Dr. Micale’s office is to make every patient feel relaxed and comfortable. I strive to make myself available to all patients in order to address any concerns. I enjoy working as a team member in the office in order to provide each individual with the highest level of care.


In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my four daughters, and my grandchildren. I like to spend my time outside either walking or going to the beach, and I enjoy exercising.




I am a Certified and Register Dental Assistant. I have been working in the field since 2005, and have been working with Dr. Micale and his staff for the over 10 years. I attended Dental Studies Institute in Fairfield, New Jersey. With many years of experience, it is my goal to make my patients as comfortable as possible, and address any concerns they may have.


When I’m not at work, I enjoy taking my dog, Gizzmo, for a walk. I also like to visit my daughter, Nicole, at the University of Alabama, and spending time with my son, JM, a student at NJIT.



I have over ten years experience in Morris County. I received my Dental Radiology license from the Dental Studies Institute of Fairfield. I really enjoy working with people and like to make them feel at home. Some of my best traits are that I am very upbeat and very approachable. Not to mention that I am very sensitive to our patient's needs and concerns which I then can communicate back to the dental team.


In my free time, I love spending time with my family who help me train for triathlons. I am a two time Ironman finisher as well as countless participationsin local races.
