Cleft Lip Cleft Palate Help, Treatment & Support

Dr Rider is the Charlotte NC regional Cleft Lip/Cleft Palate Craniofacial Orthodontist and coordinator of the Charlotte NC Cleft Lip/Cleft Palate/Craniofacial Team. His works closely with craniofacial surgeons throughout North Carolina and South Carolina, particularly Charlotte NC based Craniofacial surgeon, Dr. David Matthews preparing infants and young children for reconstructive surgery.

For best results most children born with congenital deformities like Cleft Lip/Cleft Palate require both reconstructive orthodontics and reconstructive surgery early in their lives to create an fully functional nasal-pharyngeal airway necessary to promote the development of a more "normal" development of the mid-face. Nasalized breathing is the key to good facial development in all children both cleft and non-cleft. Well timed Orthopedic Orthodontics is the key to exceptional surgical results.

As a Craniofacial orthodontist I must work in concert with the Craniofacial Surgeon, Ear Nose and Throat physician, and Reconstructive Dentist throughout the developmental years of the child to best serve their needs and insure the final esthetic and functional results are the best they can be.
