"SMILES" is a group of dedicated families
who have developed a first-hand understanding of the needs of children with cleft lip,
cleft palate, and craniofacial deformities. Through our personal sensitivity, energy,
knowledge, and love we are dedicated to improve the lives of these children in our country
and around the world.
What Makes Us Different
We take care of children with cleft lip and/or palate in the first few
days of life. All of us have been through this experience. Allow us to share the benefits
of early repairs with you. Learn about our team approach in the following pages.
Any child with a correctable facial deformity which goes uncorrected - for any reason - is
always and forever a tragedy, for if it is not then life itself has become one.
