The focus is on orthodontic and pediatric dental treatment in the broad context of an interactive coordinated team approach to care, with the goal of encouraging community orthodontists and pediatric dentists to work with their local cleft/craniofacial teams.

Management of craniofacial anomalies requires expertise in multi-disciplinary levels. With opening of the new UCSF Children’s Hospital in Mission Bay, the proximity of facilities and sharing of patient’s electronic records have facilitated the collaboration and timely coordination between primary care and specialty services in patient care. In this lecture, the etiology, genetics, presurgical and surgical managements, and the role of primary care dentists and orthodontist in the craniofacial team will be discussed. The focus of this lecture will be on important modifications in sequencing and timing of interventions that are unique and critical to patients with clefts and provide the community orthodontist and pediatric dentists with the knowledge and confidence to treat these patients.
