Hi!  I’m Angie, your Registered Dental Hygienist!  I have been helping patients with their preventive dental care for over fifteen years, and I have been here at Avalon Dental for over 10 years!  I have the most rewarding career in the world because I get to make a lasting difference in a patient’s confidence with their smile and how they present themselves to the world for the rest of their lives.  I feel so lucky to work together with Dr. Peifer, Dr. Karbasi, and our team, because we all truly love what we do and it shows everyday with every patient!  When I am not creating smiles, I enjoy local sporting events with my husband and daughter, traveling and hanging out with friends and family.  I look forward to seeing you soon!

Hi, I am Maggie! I have been in the dental field for over 13 years. I started as a dental assistant, and after 7 years in the back office, I found my true passion is with all aspects of the front office. I love using my dental knowledge to help patients understand their dental treatment and their dental insurance. While not at the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love the outdoors and love spending time with my husband and two daughters.


Hi! I’m Celeste! I have been with Avalon Dental since 2012! I’m the first person you’ll see when you visit Avalon Dental.  As Scheduling Coordinator, it is my pleasure to work together with you to find the best possible appointments with your family’s hectic schedule in mind.  I have had the honor of being a part of creating healthy smiles for over 20 years and strive to make each visit to our office the best part of your day!  I would love to meet you and answer any questions you may have or just stop by…you don’t need an appointment to come in and say hello!  When I’m not working with my wonderful team in the office, I love to travel, craft and spend time with my family.  I look forward to seeing you soon!


Hi! I am Megan, your Registered Dental Hygienist. I've been a hygienist since 2017, and been a part of my Avalon Dental family since 2018. My passion for dentistry lies in patient care and helping people improve their knowledge and confidence relating to their smile. I love working with kids and seeing their confidence grow at each dental visit. It's amazing when passion and work collide and I've found that here, working alongside the dentists and the rest of the Avalon Dental family. When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband Garrett and our 2 Austrailian Labradoodle pups. I look forward to meeting you at your next dental visit!


Hi! I'm Faidre, and I am a dental assistant. I've been in the dental industry, assisting for over 20 years. I truly enjoy what I do for the patients here at Avalon Dental.

I am originally from Wisconsin and moved here to Arizona seeking better weather and a more active outdoor lifestyle. I am a certified yoga instructor and practioner. I have a passion and love for the great outdoors. I love hiking and exploring this beautiful state we live in. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Hi!  I’m Erika!  You’ll see me hustling around both the front and back office.  I stared by assisting the dentists and the hygienists, but I moved to the front office and help patients with their insurance, and scheduling appointments. My favorite part of my job is getting to know patients on a personal level. I love to help create healthy smiles, and I want to make your dental visit as comfortable as possible.  When I am not creating smiles, I enjoy time relaxing with my family and getting together with friends.  Also, I am always thinking about my next vacation to the beach!  I hope to see you soon!
