Kid- and Family-Friendly Center

The Rose Medical Center Cleft Palate & Craniofacial Center is family-centered and patient-oriented. Examinations take place in a child- and family-friendly environment. And because we know that visits to the doctor can be challenging with little ones, we try to handle all aspects of the initial evaluation in one day. Our goal is to make this experience as pleasant as possible for your child, you and your family.
