Very, very sad. And a good reminder to keep your dentist updated with your list of allergies and general medical history. (Not that it would have helped in this case.)

I was very happy when our dentist had a meeting with us and looked me in the eye and said, "DD's allergies are a concern and I've done some research....." :huggy

If they had known about her racting to two different medications, shouldn't they have been alert for the potential of a reaction?

This is an example of just how swiftly a reaction can come on and that it will not always present as a "classic" anaphylaxis reaction (hives/facial awelling).

If it had been a heart attack or asthma, the adrenaline might have still been beneficial.

I agree w/you Susan....DD's reactions have never been "classic".
