Welcome to Craniofacial Anomalies

The Division of Craniofacial Anomalies is part of the Department of Orofacial Sciences in the UCSF School of Dentistry and is an affiliate division within the Department of Pediatrics. The division houses the UCSF Craniofacial Center, which treats all types of conditions affecting the face, head and neck, whether they were present at birth or acquired from a trauma or tumor.


Our division provides students, clinicians and researchers with multidisciplinary training in the prevention and treatment of craniofacial anomalies.


Programs including the Klein Laboratory and the UCSF Program in Craniofacial Biology conduct research on prevention and improved treatment of craniofacial anomalies.
