I have been in the orthodontic field for about two years now and I love it! I’ve learned so incredibly much thanks to Dr. Pfeffer and the knowledgeable team I work with. What drew me to this field of work were the patients. Seeing and making others happy really makes me happy and I am given the opportunity to do that here! I moved to San Diego from the DC area about two years ago with my husband who is in the Navy. We are expecting our first child in May of 2018 and cannot wait! I love going to the dog beach with our dog, exploring all of the amazing local farmers markets and pretty much anything outdoors and active!

San Diego has been my home for the last 4 years. I came from Orange County to marry the love of my life. We love serving the poor and we volunteer any chance we get. I love biking, hiking, working out, going to the movies, shopping, and, of course, eating at our favorite restaurants. We have a total of 12 nieces and nephews- they keep us active. As a kid, I wanted braces and glasses but didn’t them until I was an adult. So, I can relate to the child who is dying to have them and to the adult who is anxiously waiting to get them off. My experience and my knowledge make me able to provide the best care for my patients. When I was looking for a team that I wanted to be part of, I was looking for a warm, fun loving team of professionals who have similar morals and high standards and who would treat the patients as their own family. I have found all of these qualities here at I-Ortho. I am so proud to work directly with Dr. Pfeffer who has an amazing heart. I am looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our family.

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 began working in the orthodontic field less than a year ago and I love working at iOrtho. The team is extremely welcoming and friendly, and Dr. Pfeffer is an amazing person to work for!
I spend my weekends staying active outside, soaking up the sun at the beach and brunching with my girlfriends! I’m the happiest when I’m spending quality time with friends & family!

I am so happy to be working at the front desk of I-Ortho! I love the team and Dr. Pfeffer is an absolutely joy to work for. I just moved to San Diego from San Luis Obispo but I am originally from Texas. I am in the process of applying and interviewing for PA schools across the country to pursue my dreams of becoming a physicians assistant. The thing I love most about this job is getting to interact with all of the patients and families that walk through the door. In my free time I love to run, cook, spend time with my family who lives locally, explore new areas of San Diego, and shop!

I’ve been a Dental Assistant for 8 years and I am thrilled to be working at iOrtho! Dr Pfeffer’s knowledge, standards and caring for her patients are remarkable; I’m 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 so blessed to have become a part of the I-Ortho family in 2018! I have been an Ortho Assistant for a little over 4 years now. I love getting to share my passion for ortho with my patients by seeing them start their journey to a more beautiful confident smile that they will cherish forever. Seeing Dr. Pfeffer’s love and care for each one of her patients and her staff makes coming in to work an even more pleasurable experience. Im so happy I found this great family that shares my same passion.
In February, 2018 I moved to Escondido with the love of my life. We enjoy spending time with our loved ones, we love to laugh and just have a good time whether its going out on an adventure or staying in for the night watching movies.

I’m a newbie to the orthodontic field, and I absolutely love it so far! It is so rewarding to get to know patients, and leave them glowing with happiness when they finish with a bright, beautiful smile. Dr. Pfeffer is the most caring, intelligent person and I am so grateful to work alongside her every day!
I moved here recently from Colorado, but I’m a born and bred Arizonan where my family still lives. I love cooking and spending time with my twin soul, my cat, Dabbles. I also really enjoy hiking, and doing anything fun in the sun!

I am new to the Orthodontics field but I could not be happier to be here at I – Ortho ! When I was looking for a new job I wanted one where I could be my happy, outgoing self and I found it here at I – Ortho! When I met Dr. Pfeffer and the team I immediately fell in love with how sweet everyone was, including the patients!
I just graduated from UCSD with a Bachelor of Science and my goal is to go back and get my Masters degree! I spend my free time volunteering for multiple ministries in my church and I love baking, going on adventures, and helping others.
Abby - Administrative Team Member
I started working in the dental field last year but I just moved to San Diego from New Hampshire in April of 2018! I love that I was able to transition to an office in a brand new state so easily thanks to Dr. Pfeffer and the wonderful staff here at I-Ortho! Being able to interact with patients every day and being a part of the team that helps them to have beautiful smiles is such an amazing thing!
I decided to move to California to spend more time with the family I have here. I’m so blessed to have been given this opportunity. In my free time I enjoy being outdoors as much as possible whether it be at the beach, by the pool or just hanging out with friends and family. Being new to the area, I find myself exploring all the opportunities here to keep my personal schedule filled with fun new adventures!
