Cleft Lip & Palate

As a main focus of the FCI practice and the most common craniofacial birth defect, our team has performed hundreds of surgical procedures for cleft lip and palate repair.

Oral Surgery

Our expertise in the areas of oral surgery include dental implants, replacement of missing teeth, routine or difficult extraction cases.

Jaw Surgery & Sleep Apnea

We perform Maxillomandibular Advancement (MMA) for the treatment of sleep apnea in adults. Unlike many types of sleep apnea surgery, MMA creates a 3-dimentional increase in the airway space, which results in about 90% success rates.

Pediatric Services

We are passionate about caring for children. Our goal is to provide results that give children the best cosmetic and psychological results.
