February 1, 2017 -- The number of children hospitalized after a water line infection at a Southern California dental clinic has risen to 67, according to a January 31 update from the Health Care Agency of Orange County.

The hospitalized children had pulpotomies at the Children's Dental Group in Anaheim between February 4, 2016, and August 20, 2016. These dates are an expansion of the previous date range.

The clinic was ordered to close in December 2016 after Mycobacterium was found in its newly installed internal water system.
