We here at Dr. Stella’s Funtastic Dental & Orthodontics take pride in caring for your children’s dental health no matter what condition, impairment, disability, special need, or disorder your child may have. This month we are helping spread the knowledge about Craniofacial Disorders. But we are not alone. Across the nation CCA (Children’s Craniofacial Association), families, friends, volunteers, and related support groups are widening the circle of acceptance of individuals with facial differences. The goal of this effort is to educate the public to realize that beyond the face is a heart and the true person within.
A craniofacial disorder refers to an abnormality of the face and/or head. Craniofacial differences can result from abnormal growth patterns of the face or skull, which involves soft tissue and bones. A craniofacial condition may include disfigurement brought about by birth defect, disease or trauma.
