Pediatric Cleft Lip Palate

Approximately 1 in 700 newborns have a congenital cleft lip and/or palate deformity that affects feeding, speech and social development.

Dr. 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 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, Janet Stillings, will be happy to help you with any questions or schedule a consultation with Dr. Peterson today.
