Children's Hospital

Pediatric Hospital Dentistry

If your child cannot receive dental care in a traditional dental office, Dr. John Guijon offers gentle and effective dental care to infants, children, adolescents, and young adults in the nurturing environment at Children’s Hospital of Orange County. As one of only a few pediatric dentists in the area to offer this unique service, Dr. Guijon has the distinct ability to understand the specific needs of children who are in need of dental care but cannot cooperate for safe dental treatment. Through hospital dentistry, you can eliminate the struggles and trauma that can create a lifetime fear of dental treatment for your child.

Is hospital dentistry right for my child?

The pediatric hospital dentistry services provided by Dr. Guijon are ideal for:

  • Physically, emotionally, or developmentally challenged children who are unable to hold still for dental treatment
  • Children with a severe gag reflex
  • Children with complex medical conditions that make it unsafe to receive dental care in an office situation
  • Children who have allergies to local anesthetics or have difficulty getting numb

For these situations, the use of general anesthesia with Dr. Guijon at Children’s Hospital of Orange County may be the best option for your family.
