Our staff is committed to provide the best possible care for children with cleft lip and palate. Specialists from many different disciplines work together as a team to treat your child’s condition. Some of the specialists include a plastic surgeon, oral surgeon, orthodontist, otolaryngologist (ENT), speech therapist, nurse practitioner, audiologist, geneticist, and psychologist.
All patients must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the initial evaluation. Guardians who are not biological parents need to present legal documentation or proof of guardianship.
