Since our founding, CHOC Children’s has been meeting the needs of children and families with first-class care and state-of-the-art facilities. CHOC has emerged as an extensive healthcare system, featuring a main hospital in the city of Orange, a second hospital in Mission Viejo, multiple community clinics and mobile health vans — ensuring that every child in Orange County has access to outstanding care.
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. Please note not all children who had pulpotomies at this clinic need to be evaluated if they are symptom-free. If, however, children are experiencing pain, swelling, or fever, they should be evaluated by a dentist or pediatrician.
