Since 1987 Austin Smiles has provided life-changing services to children born with cleft lip and palate

Children with cleft lip and palate often face one or more health and developmental complications without proper treatment. These complications include difficulties in feeding, speech, breathing, and hearing as well as compromised oral health and frequent ear infections. Austin Smiles believes every child born with a cleft lip or palate deserves access to life-changing care.
