Synopsis by Alice Day
When parents learn that their child has been born with a cleft palate, the news can be devastating. Giving Your Child a Smile is a reassuring program that outlines the treatments available with proper medical support. Corrective procedures require the services of a pediatrician, a plastic surgeon, an oral surgeon, an orthodontist, and speech therapists. With the help of computer graphics, parents will see how the correction takes place. The specialists explain their roles in clear terminology, and there are before and after pictures to show the encouraging results.
