Introduction: The quality of life is amorphous and multi- level concept and can vary in priority among people in different age group. Nowadays the quality of life is learned by many medical brances as therapy, surgery, oncology and etc.. We studied the quality of life in patients after cleft palate surgery. More than 200,000 children are born with cleft lip and palate each year, and the condition threatens both the life and livelihood of the child. Cleft may cause problems with feeding, ear disease, speech and socialization. Due to lack of suction, an infant with a cleft may have trouble feeding. But do all this problems finishes with surgical treatment? A cleft lip or palate can be successfully treated with surgery , especially so if conducted soon after birth or in early childhood. Most children who have their clefts repaired early enough are not able to have a happy youth and social life. Children who had a cleft palate repair need to see a dentist or orthodontist. The teeth may need to be corrected as they come in. We decided to study the patient who didn’t agree with our propose to be treated by orthodontist.And the patients who was treated by speech therapist and orthodontist.
