Cleft lip and palate (CLP) is the most commonly occurring congenital facial anomaly, in which Bilateral CLP is the least common among the different types of CLP. CLP correction requires a proper diagnosis and stage-wise treatment planning with a multidisciplinary approach which involves orthodontic and surgical correction of dental malocclusion and skeletal discrepancies, respectively. This case report emphasizes the need for multidisciplinary treatment which includes orthodontic treatment, orthognathic surgery, secondary lip revision and rhinoplasty performed in an 8-year-old patient with bilateral CLP to achieve a balanced and pleasing profile with good functional occlusion. The multidisciplinary approach performed by the orthodontists and oral surgeons brought stupendous results and showed good retention at 2-year posttreatment.
