The Comprehensive Cleft Care Workshop (CCCW), founded by Global Smile Foundation

The Comprehensive Cleft Care Workshop (CCCW) offers a unique opportunity to both the advanced cleft provider and the novice to gain knowledge and develop competency. Sessions are geared towards cleft care specialties, with an emphasis on an integrated team approach.

Our approach to cleft care is based on evidence and experience that the best cleft care is provided by an integrated team of specialists that includes surgery, dentistry, orthodontics, pediatrics, speech pathology, psychology, nursing, and anesthesiology.

Attendees are immersed in 3½ days of interactive didactic and applied training, with hands-on simulation sessions and Grand Masters round table discussions. Expert faculty conduct detailed case reviews and provide one-on-one feedback to attendees.

The agenda for the 2025 CCCW will be available soon.
