How is dentistry involved in my child's care?

Dental specialists are key parts of the craniofacial team.

Healthy teeth are particularly important for children with craniofacial conditions because they support orthodontic appliances used to improve jaw position and results of reconstructive surgery.

Our pediatric dentists provide early evaluation of the health of your child's mouth. When dental treatment is needed, it may be done in the hospital's dental clinic or by your child's own dentist in consultation with the team.
