Approximately one in 700 newborns has a congenital cleft lip and/or palate deformity, negatively impacting feeding, speech and even social development.
Dr. Jack Peterson is the team director of the Topeka Cleft Lip and Palate Team. This team is a recognized member of the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association. The team’s goal is to ensure that a patient’s medical, developmental, dental and psychological needs are treated in a coordinated and consistent manner from birth to age 18.
Our team coordinator, Cyndi Russell, will be happy to help you with any questions or schedule a consultation with Dr. Peterson today.
