At a cleft clinic, you will meet a range of people who will help you along your journey. These staff members will be qualified and work in nursing, orthodontics, microsurgery, dentistry, and many more. Each Cleft Clinic is typically found within the children’s ward at state hospitals; you may at first feel inundated with many people asking you multiple questions, but each person is there to help and will be seen as another hand to hold.
