Cleft lip, palate and severe obstructive sleep apnea require a multidisciplinary approach to therapy. Children born with cleft lip and/or palate may require multiple procedures in the first few years of life. Our team is designed to guide parents through this process and to offer ongoing support for years to come. The Puget Sound Cleft and Complex Sleep Clinic team is comprised of:
Facial plastic surgery
Oral and maxillofacial surgery
We provide counseling and treatment from newborns to adults, including the full spectrum of cleft related disorders.
Sleep apnea is a chronic medical condition that significantly affects health and well being. In addition to first-line treatments, children with sleep apnea benefit from close collaboration between medical and dental health professionals.
