Dr. Johnny Icely is a unique addition to the LEND family as his experience with special needs care extends into both professional and private life. Dr. Icely has very personal experiences with cleft lip and palate. He is the third generation in his family to have a cleft and is the father of two children with a cleft. Dr. Icely co-founded the Arizona Cleft Families support group in 2013 and has previously served as a clinic mentor for Tucson Children’s Clinic.
Dr. Icely is a proud graduate of University of Arizona and graduated from A.T. Still University with his doctorate degree in Dental Medicine. His career interests revolve around treating patients with special needs, particularly craniofacial abnormalities. He currently holds a staff position on the Barrow Cleft and Craniofacial Team in Phoenix Arizona and is a private practice dentist in Tucson Arizona.
He hopes to use the experiences gained in LEND to become more understanding of his patients and a better advocate for them on and off a Craniofacial Team.
He loves spending time with his wife and three little girls, mountain biking, rock climbing, and drinking cold lemonade on hot days.
