Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Clinic Support
Today's insurance does not cover three very important phases of dental treatment for a child with cleft lip and palate: the nasoalveolar molding at birth, which allows children to feed successfully and helps ensure a good lip/palate repair; maxillary expansion and bracing at age seven to realign the jaw and properly space teeth; and final bracing and restoration once permanent teeth come in.
We're hoping that you'll join us in the gift of a lifetime. Please donate to the MCG Foundation today so that children with cleft lip and palate in Georgia can have a different kind of life - one where they don't ever have to hide their smiles.
