Leah Life, DDS, is an accomplished general and cosmetic dentist at Pastel Dental, located in the Laurel Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, California. Dr. Life’s pathway into dentistry started at a young age: she had the pleasure of watching her father thrive in his dental career, building a practice and loving his patients and work. Learning from him (and experiencing a few dental emergencies of her own) prompted Dr. Life to pursue a double major in biology and studio art, with a concentration in sculpture. She graduated cum laude from Georgetown University with a Bachelor of Science in biology.
Upon completing her undergraduate degree at Georgetown, Dr. Life pursued her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. She graduated with the highest honors as a member of Tau Kappa Omega and the National Honors Society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon.
Dr. Life enjoys creating functional, esthetic art through her dentistry but takes the greatest pride in improving the lives of her patients. Outside of work, Dr. Life is a fitness instructor, previously teaching at SoulCycle and currently coaching at Rumble Boxing. She also enjoys skiing, reading science fiction and fantasy, and playing with her dog, Baylor.
