Pediatric Dentist, Raleigh, NC, 27615 - Drs. Kindrachuk and Gilchrist

Pediatric Dentist - Community Involvement

Dr. Pfefferle contributes a great deal of his personal time helping children in countries all over the world. Since his forced retirement, he has increased his travels and activities now that he can't actually perform "hand's on" dentistry. Dr. Pfefferle misses being able to do the dentistry, but now derives a great deal of satisfaction from not only planning trips, but in taking and teaching dental students to do what he loved to do so much. "I was told that God will never close a door without opening a window, and all I can tell you, is that there are many, many windows in God's house!"
