My story

[p]We are having a fundraising event on Saturday 6th July 2019 from 11am at Bespoke Dental Care, Gravesend to raise money for Smile Train. [/p][p]Smile Train is a charity who pay 100% of the cost of a cleft lip / palate surgery for children all over the world. Globally, 1 in every 700 children is born with a cleft lip and/or palate. Clefts are the leading birth defect in many developing countries. [/p][p]Like Smile Train, we believe that every child deserves the ability to smile. Every donation made will make a difference and contribute to helping a child smile. [/p][p]What are cleft lips and palates?[/p][p] A cleft occurs when certain body parts and structures do not fuse together during fetal development. Clefts can involve the lip and/or the roof of the mouth, which is made up of both hard and soft palate. In developing countries, the vast majority of children with clefts will never receive the reconstructive surgery they need.[/p][p]What does it mean to be a child with an untreated cleft in a developing country? [/p][p] Children with untreated clefts face physical difficulties eating, breathing, hearing, and speaking. Cleft treatment alleviates many of these difficulties, ultimately enabling them to thrive.[/p][p]Can clefts be treated?[/p][p][b] [/b]Reconstructive surgery for clefts has evolved over more than half a century, and today’s techniques and procedures have come a long way. The surgery today is simple and the transformation is immediate. Patients see their smile for the first time, parents cry tears of joy, and lives and communities are changed forever. Sugery is quick and simple and costs only £150. [/p][p]We would like to thank everybody that makes a donation and invite everyone to our event at [/p][p]-Bespoke Dental Care, 93 Lower Higham Road, Gravesend, DA12 2NQ [/p][p]-on Saturday 6th July 2019 from 11.00am [/p][p]There will be hot and cold drinks, cakes, brownies and sweet and savoury treats as well as games and a big raffle with prizes such as a sports massage, hair cut and blow dry at Toni & Guy, case of beers, set of gel nails, electric toothbrush, hygiene clean, private check up and more.
