September 12, 2017 — Management of Cleft Lip and Pal​ate

Presented by Jason Miller, MD

Cleft lip and palate is by far one of the most common human craniofacial defects. Understanding the complex nature of the deformity and principles involved in its management is critical in obtaining good outcomes. A significant proportion of the issues associated with orofacial clefting involves dentition and occlusion. It is therefore paramount that dental practitioners managing the care of patients with clefting have a strong understanding of these principles.
