Coming from a family of dentists back on the east coast, Dr. Pfeffer decided on dental school after working in Oncology for a Pharmaceutical Company.  She missed the personal interaction that she saw in her family’s dental offices.  This prompted her to obtain her Doctorate in Dental Medicine from an Ivy League institution.  After which, Dr. Pfeffer was selected by the University of Southern California for Residency, to work in a hospital setting, helping those less fortunate.  Here she worked with veterans, trauma victims, medically compromised, cancer patients and in the operating room for those patients with special needs. From there she continued onto Orthodontic Residency.

From there Dr. Pfeffer joined two of the oldest and largest private practices in North Dallas, where she ran it alongside with its owner.  Wanting to get back to the west coast, Dr. Pfeffer was ecstatic to find Dr. Moser whose treatment philosophies and bedside manner were identical. Since that time Dr. Pfeffer has continued a great tradition of happy patients and community service. Her focus is on creating smiles both in and outside the office by helping fund community projects, education and recreation.  As a long time swimmer, Dr. Pfeffer enjoys anything by the water and lives for moments where she can make patients laugh.  In her spare time, Dr. Pfeffer has a strong commitment to volunteerism even outside of dentistry.  Currently the practice has given back over 12% of its profits to our local community and her volunteer focus has been on improving the lives of foster youth, as issue dear to her own heart. Overall Dr. Pfeffer wants her patients and staff to be happy, so that they can spread that happiness to others!
