When trying to access adequate care and treatment, many patients born with various forms of craniofacial and head-neck deformities often encounter limited resources. As care providers, we work to make cases to multiple organizations to ensure coverage for our patients, including government programs, insurance agencies, non-profit organizations, and in certain cases, other healthcare providers. The American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association (ACPA) recommends that patients born with such birth defects are most benefited when their provides work together in interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary teams. This helps to not only ensure the best possible outcome, but also the most effective utilization of health resources.
Dr. Deji Fashemo, as a dentist and orthodontist who treats several types of craniofacial and head-neck deformities, believes in this process and works to provide his patients with the best possible dental care treatment plans. We strive to provide cutting-edge treatment plans that reflect Dr. Deji Fashemo’s extensive knowledge and understanding of craniofacial growth and development.
If you or your child is in need of consultations with other healthcare providers, our office is happy to arrange and coordinate these consultations as part of our seamless treatment sequencing. We focus on ongoing reviews and critical evaluations with the latest established clinical research protocols to make certain that each patient benefits from state-of-the-art treatment protocols.
Furthermore, Dr. Deji Fashemo serves on the Ethics and Advocacy Committee of the ACPA, where he collaborates with other healthcare providers to ensure patients receive the most well-timed and appropriate treatments. He also serves as the Medical Director of Craniofacial Orthodontic Serves at Medical City Dallas Children’s Hospital and is a reviewer for the ACPA Journal. These roles enable him to stay current with the most recent developments in the fields of orthodontics and cleft and craniofacial care, and he can then apply this knowledge toward the improvement of his patients’ treatment.
