I am one of 350 experts in the world that specialize in making prosthetics for people who have had parts of their face removed.
Hi Reddit, my name is Andrea Smith, I am a Maxillofacial Prosthodontist (a subspecialty of dentistry) and the Clinical Director at the non-profit Lancaster Cleft Palate Clinic where we have helped thousands of adults and children with birth defects as well as defects that result from cancer and trauma. I can reconstruct your teeth or make you a face, nose, palate, or eye! We have seen everything from rare syndromes, patients that have been mauled by bears, and survivors of self-inflicted gunshot wounds. Our main focus here is helping children affected by cleft lip and palate, ask me anything!
Thanks for all of your questions, for more info or if you'd like to support the Clinic, go to www.cleftclinic.org!
