Philosophy of Care

My primary mission at Boston Children's Hospital is to provide the best treatment and consultative services available for the children of our dental service and of our cleft lip and palate-craniofacial center.

Additionally, I strive to educate the next generation of dentists and orthodontists in the care of this unique group of patients.  I also hope to further enhance our understanding and increase our knowledge by participating in research in the cleft-craniofacial field and by helping spread that knowledge through my section editing role at the Cleft Palate–Craniofacial Journal.
