The Children We Serve

Cleft lip and palate is the fourth most common birth defect, affecting approximately one in every 750 live births. Each year, over 5,000 children are born with cleft lip/palate in the U.S. In addition, approximately 82,000 children are born annually with an abnormality of their face, head or neck.

We care for over 300 children annually. Children of all ages born with a cleft or other craniofacial disorder and their families will find a home at our center. We follow children from birth (and in some cases, prenatally) until adulthood. We see children of all ages who have previously had clinical care elsewhere, as well. We also evaluate and treat children without a known cleft who have certain speech problems.
