Orange County Children's Dental Clinic Closed After Bacteria Found In New Water System
Orange County health officials have ordered the closure of a children’s dental office in Anaheim after lab tests found bacteria in its new internal water system, which had replaced a system blamed for an earlier outbreak of bacterial infections. The county Health Care Agency conducted initial testing of the water system at Children’s Dental Group of Anaheim in September when the agency received multiple reports of children who had developed oral infections after undergoing “baby root canals” at the facility, according to the agency.

Anaheim Children's Dental Clinic Ordered Closed Due To Bacteria In Water
Orange County's health department Friday ordered a troubled Anaheim children's dental clinic to close after its new water system tested positive for bacteria. Children's Dental Group had recently replaced its on-site system after health authorities determined the water had caused infections among dozens of kids who underwent partial root canals there earlier this year.
