Alaska’s Cleft Lip and Palate Program
Alaska’s Cleft Lip and Palate Program (formerly known the State of Alaska Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic) is the first state endorsed cleft lip and palate program in Alaska. This program holds six clinics per year allowing parents and their children the most comprehensive evaluations possible through team care. Our team includes an audiologist, ear, nose and throat specialist, speech language pathologist, behavioral health consultant, nutritionist, pediatrician, pediatric dentist, oral surgeon, plastic surgeon, orthodontist, along with a parent navigator to help guide the families.
Alaska’s Cleft Lip and Palate Program is open to all Alaska residents, both Alaska Native and non-Native people.
Beginning January 1, 2019, the Alaska Cleft Lip and Palate Program will be an American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association certified Cleft Palate Team.
