Background and Method: The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the adherence frequency of Candida albicans and non-albicans Candida species in newborn babies with Cleft Lip and Palate (CLP) who receive presurgical orthopedic therapy with Nasoalveolar Molding (NAM) appliances. This study comprised of 25 CLP newborns including 8-right unilateral, 8-left unilateral and 7-bilateral CLP. First swab samples were taken from the hard palate when the baby was referred and renewed after 3 days. Following the 7th day of delivery of NAM appliance, the swab samples were retaken from both the hard palate and the NAM appliance. Samples were renewed with 2-month intervals. The last swab samples were taken one month after the surgery. Oral swabs were cultured on CHROMagar Candida medium for the growth of yeasts.
