Our team includes specialists working together from all types of medical specialties, including:

  • Audiology
  • Oral and maxillofacial surgery

Child and family-friendly center

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

Comprehensive, ongoing care

Our patients receive ongoing care that typically includes several years of treatment. Successful treatment is achieved gradually and carefully through a series of well-planned reconstructive surgeries that coordinate all aspects of a patient’s treatment throughout the years. We are committed to providing the best, long-term care for our patients and their families.
