In brief: Diverse, expert team

A cleft lip/palate team is a group of healthcare providers with expertise in evaluation and management of cleft lip with or without cleft palate.
These usually include: audiology, craniofacial/plastic surgery, dentistry, ear/nose/throat surgery, nursing, ophthalmology, oral/maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, psychology, speech therapy and a patient coordinator.

In brief: A bunch of people!

A clp team is a group that treats this condition.
Typically involves an oral surgeon, a dentist, a prosthodontists, and a speech therapist. There are many aspects to treating a case of clp, so a coordinated team approach with everyone working together is very important.
