Smile Train Patients Before / After
What Does Smile Train do?
Clefts are gaps in the upper lip and/or the roof of the mouth (palate). They occur when certain body parts do not fuse together during the early part of pregnancy. Clefts can cause difficulties in eating, breathing, hearing, and speaking, among other complications.
Cleft surgery and comprehensive cleft treatment are 100% free for Smile Train patients anywhere in India. Free transportation to and from Smile Train treatment centers may also be available for those in need.
