National Cleft and Craniofacial Awareness Month

Jul 18 2019

Cleft and craniofacial conditions affect thousands of infants, children, teens and adults in the United States each year. Some are born with congenital anomalies like cleft lip and palate, others with more complex, life-threatening craniofacial conditions. Some are burned; others are injured in accidents and animal attacks, or diagnosed with various oral/head/neck and skin diseases.


Since 2012, I volunteer time and as a prosthodontist am on a cleft team at Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis. I have also been on mission trips with Operation Smile to the Philippines and Honduras. The stories and the experience have been incredible. The procedures are life changing in many ways. Happy National Cleft and Craniofacial Awareness Month!
