Research has suggested that certain health behaviors may be associated with cleft lip and palate. However, there are still areas, both biologically and clinically, where research can be improved. This study focuses on clinical improvements with treatment. Conducted through a parental survey to discover when and where treatment is received. This will determine if it is more difficult to receive treatment in rural areas such as West Virginia.
