Cleft Lip and Palate Services and Delivery

Alaska Cleft Lip and  Palate Clinics offer multidisciplinary, long-term, comprehensive, coordinated evaluations and treatment planning for children with craniofacial abnormalities.  Each year more than 100 children with clefts are seen by a team of specialists at clinics in Anchorage and Fairbanks.  The multidisciplinary team may consist of the following specialties:  audiology, nutrition, oral surgery, orthodontics, otolaryngology, parent navigation, pediatric dentistry, pediatrics, plastic surgery, and speech-language pathology.  Individuals with cleft lip and palate are eligible for clinic services from birth through 21 years of age or until treatment is complete.
