I was cited for possesion of drug paraphernalia. I was offered deffered dispostion (community service,class,and pay the fine). I completed this which would mean no conviction , but would this deffered dispostion show up on a background check?
Maybe. Depends on how thorough the background check is. Sometimes Class C tickets don't show up. A lot of the time they do.
You should get that expunged. IF expunged properly, it will never show up on any background check and you can legally say you never were cited for that case.
Use the find a lawyer tab above, read reviews, call around, rates will vary, good luck.

The only way to be sure it will not show up is to get it expunged. Otherwise, depending on how extensive a background check it is, it could show up.

It CAN, but it is unlikely. The only way it will show up is if the municipality reported it to DPS. The vast majority of them do not notify DPS in cases where the person successfully completes deferred. I would still look into expunging the case from your record completely to remove all risk of anyone seeing it.
