Dental Outbreak Alert

CHOC Children’s Hospital has admitted several patients for bacterial infections following a procedure, known as a pulpotomy, at an Anaheim dental clinic. In addition, we have been receiving phone calls from the community, including local pediatricians, dentists and oral surgeons who are seeing children in their private practices.

We understand the concern of parents whose children underwent this procedure. The dental clinic says it will contact children who are at risk for possible infection for evaluation.

If there is cause for more concern, these children will be referred for further evaluation. The Orange County Health Care Agency has additional facts at http://ochealthinfo.com
