Cleft Lip & Palate

Cleft lip and/or palate is a birth defect where an infant’s lip and palate has not completely closed prior to birth. This leads to breathing, eating and speech problems and is best solved when the child is young. We are one of very few cleft lip & palate teams in the Carolinas. Read more about our cleft lip & palate team here.

Wisdom & Impacted Teeth

3rd molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth have the potential to crowd out other teeth on the jawline and cause major dental issues when older. The same is true for impacted teeth, which are teeth that are ‘stuck’ and cannot erupt into function.  If you need to have a wisdom or impacted tooth removed, Carolinas Center for Oral & Facial Surgery offers world class dental care.

This was my 12 year old daughter’s first surgery and she was extremely nervous. Dr. Wessel and his entire staff treated her with extreme patience, kindness and respect.

Dr. Robinson and his staff were very friendly and helpful. I was in need of a difficult wisdom tooth removal and Dr. Robinson explained the procedure and possible side effects I might experience both clearly and completely. The surgery was performed successfully and I am greatly appreciative to Dr. Robinson and his staff for their treatment and the clear communication throughout the process.
