What Can We Help You Find?

Interdisciplinary excellence. A unified mission.

Children born with cleft lip, cleft palate and/or other craniofacial differences may require individualized treatment into adulthood. Their care is best managed when a team of specialists works with the family to develop and follow a treatment plan. ACPA is dedicated to team care and to optimizing outcomes for patients.

ACPA approves teams that meet the Standards for Approval of Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Teams, based on the Parameters of Care. ACPA Approved Teams are listed on the website and are available for the general public to reference when choosing a provider for cleft and craniofacial healthcare needs.

ACPA only approves teams in the U.S. and Canada. The website also lists teams from around the world as a resource for patients and families.
