Charlotte W Lewis, MD, MPH


"Before becoming a pediatrician, I was an infant and pediatric nutritionist. I liked my job but wanted to be more involved with children and their families. This led me to pursue medicine. During my training as a pediatrician, I saw that children who were poor or who had special needs often had serious dental decay; it was difficult to find a dentist who would care for these children. My research interest in oral health disparities developed from this experience. As a pediatrician at the Craniofacial Center, I provide medical care for children with craniofacial birth defects and also focus on children’s feeding, nutrition and oral health."
