Temple Cleft-Craniofacial Team Clinics
The Clinic is held on Tuesdays throughout each month. Every patient is seen in individual evaluations by the team members. Team members then discuss information from the individual evaluations and decisions are made for the ongoing management of the patient. A Comprehensive Treatment Plan is mailed to each family following their clinic visit.
Management may include additional surgery, speech therapy, dental care and coordination with other agencies, such as the schools, local physicians or dentists where services may be rendered.
Each patient is seen by the team annually in order to monitor progress and assess for possible surgical procedures or other necessary interventions. This ensures timely planning for growth and the needs of the patient.
