Garfinkle is a Portland orthodontist and one of the few dentists in the state who specializes in what are called craniofacial anomalies
, which about one in 700 infants are born with.
However, studies show that children with special needs, including conditions such as ADHD, autism, Asperger's syndrome, craniofacial anomalies
, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and muscular dystrophy are at a much higher risk for sleep disorders than children who do not.
Pathological aspects of diseases like tooth and craniofacial anomalies
, tumors, chemical and physical injuries, allergic and immunological diseases, granulomatous diseases and collagen disorders are also covered.
The proceeds benefited the UNC Craniofacial Center, which serves patients who have cleft lip and/or palate and other craniofacial anomalies
Associated craniofacial anomalies
such as cleft palate, mandibular malformations and micrognathia (9) may make oxygenation and ventilation difficult.
It contributes to several conditions for which patients seek evaluation, including sleep apnea, congenital craniofacial anomalies
, and aesthetic concerns.
The student is guided to see that it is she or he, not a disembodied other, who fears removing the feeding tube and caring for the dehydrating body, or struggles with feeling that enough medication to manage a dying person's dyspnea may also hasten that dying, or feels that money for a third heart valve replacement for a heroin-addicted patient should instead be spent on corrective dentistry for children born with craniofacial anomalies
