Contact the Cleft Lip and Palate Center

The Cleft Lip and Palate Center at Boston Children's Hospital cares for children and adolescents with cleft lip and/or cleft palate.  Seeing more than 575 patients each year, the program is one of the largest and most experienced in the world when it comes to cleft lip and/or palate diagnoses, treatment and follow up care.

Proper cleft lip and/or palate treatment often requires the skills of many specialists. Our multidisciplinary team includes plastic and oral maxillofacial surgeons, dentists, otolaryngologists, speech-language pathologists, audiologists, psychologists, social workers and clinical geneticists with the pediatric expertise needed to get your child on the road to recovery. 

In addition to patient care, our team is involved in innovative scientific research to benefit children and adolescents born with cleft lip and/or cleft palate.  

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
