TOPIC Orthodontic Management of Cleft Lip & Palate
Sneha Oberoi, DDS
2 CE Units (Core)
This lecture is designed for the dentist/orthodontist who wishes to supplement his/her knowledge and skills pertaining to the treatment of patients with cleft lip and palate. The focus is on orthodontic treatment in the broad context of an interactive coordinated team approach to care, with the goal of encouraging community orthodontists to work with their local cleft/craniofacial teams. The lecture will focus on important modifications in sequencing and timing of interventions that are unique and critical to patients with clefts and provide the community orthodontist with the knowledge and confidence to treat these patients.
