Dr. Jenifer K.Moser

Dr. Jenifer Moser is a general dentist in New Haven, Missouri, who is committed to providing exceptional dental care for children and adults.

Dr. Jenifer Moser attended Missouri State University and then went on to attend the University of Missouri- Kansas City School of Dentistry where she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1998. From 1998-2001 Dr. Moser served as a captain in the United States Air Force and was stationed at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi. There she treated the dental needs of many service members readying for deployment. Upon her honorable discharge from active duty in 2001, she began practicing dentistry at New Haven Dental, which has been treating dental patients in New Haven and the surrounding areas for over 30 years. In 2006, Dr. Moser became the owner of New Haven Dental. Dr. Moser’s professional memberships include the American Dental Association, the Missouri Dental Association, the Greater St. Louis Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry and the American Association of Women Dentists. Dr. Moser highly values continuing education and attends multiple courses each year to keep up with the newest dental techniques. Dr. Moser has a very gentle and caring approach with patients and helps to provide the best quality dentistry possible. Dr. Moser and her husband, Darrel, live outside of town with their three beautiful children, Meghan, Ava and Maxwell. Outside of dentistry she enjoys running, snow skiing, boating and family camping.

The State of Missouri sponsors a free varnish program (application of fluoride) for all elementary school aged children. For the past four years Dr. Moser and her staff has volunteered at area schools, first providing a complimentary screening and then applying the varnish. The fluoride varnish strengthens tooth enamel and prevents decay. We hope to not only continue with the local school in New Haven, but branch out to other elementary schools in our community.
