This short review is an opportunity to focus on significant positive changes for those children born with some form of oro-facial clefting and
who are treated in a centralised service within the National Health Service (NHS). There has also been an opportunity to provide a focus for research as part of this service model. Orthodontists have played a key role in all aspects of this and will continue to be central to further improvement in caring for cleft children.
