The Essex County Dental Society has donated $25,000 to the John McGivney Children's Centre for the continued dental care of our special needs community. This dental program is designed to assist families of patients with cleft lip and/or palate, craniofacial syndromes and severe dental dysfunction. Dr. Janisse is the orthodontic consultant and a member of the Cleft Lip and Palate team in the Maxillofacial-Speech Clinic at the John McGivney Children's Centre. He has successfully completed the Nasal Alveolar molding appliance workshop form the New York University Langone Medical Center. This allows our office to be the first to provide newborns born with cleft palate the opportunity to be treated in our own community!
