Combined Cleft Clinic (known as CCC) is a multi-disciplinary clinic that is focussed on cleft cases. The team is made up of medical, dental, and allied health science professionals/ specialists who are trained in managing cleft cases. A cleft patient will be seen by these professionals/ specialists at one sitting.
This enables the team to discuss, develop, and monitor the optimal cleft management protocol to be administered. A cleft can be managed at the CCC from young until adulthood. While CCC looks at and recommends the cleft management protocol, actual treatment/management will be administered by each of the impacted health disciplines.
