Cleft and Craniofacial Care Team

Our team includes experts from 16 specialty areas who work together to create an individualized care plan to meet the long-term needs of patients and families.

All of our specialists are trained in treating young patients, which ensures awareness of the unique developmental issues of children at all ages. Our goal is to improve the health and physical appearance of our patients and promote their overall well-being.

Since children with craniofacial abnormalities may have problems with the appearance, speech, hearing or other areas, we assess the child as a team. This multi-disciplinary approach allows for open discussion and shared planning for the best individualized treatment.
