Financial Assistance

Cleft lip and palate surgeries and follow-up care can be expensive. Insurance often covers the costs of most cleft lip/palate repair. While Smile Train primarily focuses on providing free cleft lip and palate surgery and follow up care in developing countries, Smile Train also provides grants to hundreds of accredited cleft teams in the developed countries that you can find on the search bar on the left. Please speak directly to our partner Cleft team to see if you qualify for a grant that they have received.
