Community Benefit

Each year, more than 400 children in Canada are born with cleft or craniofacial disorders. Examples of cleft and craniofacial defects include openings in the lip, the roof of the mouth and the bones of the upper jaw. As a result, these children have significant and complex health issues that can make the most basic activities, such as speaking, eating and breathing extremely challenging. While these conditions can be successfully treated, some of the procedures are not covered under the Canadian health care system. This project will provide financially disadvantaged children with cleft or craniofacial differences with much-needed dental treatment. This project will also provide easy-to-understand educational materials that will help to increase the quality of care these children receive, as well as the general awareness of their disorders.
