About the Author

Dr. Samuel Berkowitz DDS, MS, FICD, an orthodontist, was a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics and Surgery associated with South Florida Craniofacial Anomalies Program at the University of Miami School of Medicine. His main goal was to develop teaching materials in cleft palate for professionals in plastic and oral surgery, orthodontics, and speech language pathology. He is president of the Miami Craniofacial Anomalies Foundation and is active in the American Association of Orthodontics, Florida Cleft Palate Association and the Edward Angle Society of Orthodontists. He has published widely in the medical and cleft palate journals and is the author of Volume I and the editor of Volume II of Cleft Lip and Palate Perspectives In Management, First Edition; has co-authored, Plastic Surgery of the Facial Skeleton with S. A. Wolfe, MD; and has written The Cleft Palate Story, First Edition for the parent of a child born with a cleft. Dr. Berkowitz is a popular speaker on cleft lip/palate topics and has presented many workshops and seminars in the United States and abroad. His research interest focuses on improving surgical-orthodontic treatment planning for cleft lip and palate children as well as those with other craniofacial anomalies. Currently, Dr. Berkowitz is project director of a clinical research program that is studying the long-term effects of various surgical treatment procedures on palatal and facial growth and development. His extensive serial clinical records of dental casts, lateral cephaloradiographs, facial and intraoral photographs and panorexes are going to the National Museum of Health and medicine, associated with Walter Reed Hospital’s Institute of Pathology in Washington, DC, where it will be available for continued study.

Format: Paperback
This book is just what I was looking for. I'm adopting a child with cleft palate but I haven't met him yet. I needed a good description of the condition along with some visual aids. This book provides that. It also provides a lot of information about the latest treatment methods, with plenty of before and after photos. The other books out there for parents of cleft-affected kids were published quite awhile ago and I wasn't sure they'd have the most updated treatment information. This one does. My only complaint is that it could be written a bit more clearly in parts. It gives some good technical information but is unnecessarily complicated at times.
