Coming from a family of dentists back on the east coast, Dr. Pfeffer decided on dental school after working in Cancer Research. She missed the personal interaction that she saw in her familys dental offices. This prompted her to obtain her Doctorate in Dental Medicine from an Ivy League institution while also obtaining a Masters in Biomedical Ethics from University of Pennsylvania's School of Medicine. Here she served numerous leadership roles while winning 1st in the Nation for her scientific research and was one of 5 nationally to Intern at the American Dental Association. She carried out an Internship at two Dental Hospitals in London before being selected by her 1st choice, the University of Southern California for Hospital Residency. Here she worked with veterans, trauma victims, medically compromised, cancer patients and in the operating room for those patients with special needs. After which she continued on as the Top 1% to be accepted into Orthodontic Residency. From there Dr. Pfeffer pursued not only professional success but also has been recognized for her wide-spread philanthropy in the community. Winning numerous awards, serving on multiple boards and her continuous recognition in magazines and news sources, she has been a leading force in Dentistry for California as well as those less fortunate. When she's not in the office she Volunteers as Faculty for UCSD's Free Clinic and provides free screening and treatment to those in need monthly.

After completing her orthodontic residency 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, an 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!
I have been in the orthodontic field for about 40 years and have been a part of the Team since Moser Orthodontics first opened. I enjoy working for Dr. Pfeffer and helping the practice grow. Shes an awesome orthodontist, very knowledgeable in her field and a very caring person. I am very fortunate to be on the I-Ortho team. I have 2 daughters; a dog, Bubba; and a cat, Butch. My youngest daughter is in the US Navy and getting married in the Fall. My oldest lives in Germany where her husband is stationed in the Air Force and had their first child (my first grandchild) in December 2018. I enjoy walking my dog, gardening, decorating, arts and crafts, reading and traveling.
I moved to San Diego 2 years ago from the Washington D.C. area and I am in love with Southern California, I think this will be my forever home! I spend my free time staying active outside, volunteering in the San Diego community, soaking up the sun at the beach and brunching with my girlfriends. Im the happiest when Im spending quality time with friends & family!
I have been working in the orthodontic field for a little over a year and I love working at iOrtho. The team is extremely welcoming and friendly, and Dr. Pfeffer is an amazing person to work for. Her charitable heart and eagerness to serve is what drew me to join this team!
I have been a Dental Assistant for 8 years following my career as a Dentist in El Salvador. I am thrilled to be working with the team at iOrtho! Dr Pfeffers knowledge, standards and caring for her patients are remarkable; Im proud of working with her and to be a part of the iOrtho family! I moved to San Diego a year ago from Ventura County.
I have been married for 10 years and we have 2 amazing boys together, 7 and 6 years old! We love exploring San Diego, venturing on hikes, finding new places to eat, relaxing at the beach and traveling.
I am new to San Diego, I moved here from Washington State about a year ago. I am new to the orthodontic field as well but have been enjoying all that I have been learning. Working with children brings me joy as I was a preschool teacher for many years. The transition into the front office position felt natural, smooth, and easy. Its so fun to see the smiles that are transformed here at i-Ortho. I feel so lucky to be able to work with such amazing women and admire all of their kind, warm hearts.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends, hanging out at the beach, and playing with my pets, Nala and Kitty. Often, I find myself enjoying motorcycle/car rides with no real destination and just soaking in the beauty of southern California!
Ive worked in general practice for a while until one day I decided to step out of my comfort zone. The day that I found i-Ortho and met Dr. Pfeffer, I immediately knew that this is where I wanted to be! I am so happy and proud to be a member of the i-Ortho family. I am originally a Dentist from the Philippines and decided to move to sunny San Diego where I am happily married! I usually spend my free time gardening and playing with my shih tzu Juancho. I also practice pilates and love traveling.
I just moved to San Diego from Wisconsin in March 2020. I am loving the sunshine and being so close to the ocean! While Im brand new to the ortho field, I am so happy to be working here at I-Ortho! I couldnt imagine a better work family! All of the girls are wonderful and Dr. Pfeffer is amazing. You wont find a friendlier team! Outside of work, I find myself spending quality time with friends, playing with my 3 year old cat, Lenny or 1 year old dog, Piglet.
