A 3-year-old died Saturday after reportedly undergoing a dental procedure inside a California medical office, officials said.
 
The girl, who underwent a procedure at the Dentalbliss dental office in San Ramon, has been identified by the Contra Costa County coroner’s office as Marvelena Rady.
 
Officials have not revealed Marvelena’s cause of death, or whether she was under anesthesia at the time. 
 
It is unclear what treatment the child received before she suffered complications that caused her to stop breathing. Emergency personnel arrived at the office around 10 a.m. after receiving a 911 call.
 
Marvelena was rushed to San Ramon Regional Medical Center, SF Gate reports, citing Battalion Chief Dan McNamara, a spokesman for San Ramon Valley Fire. There, she was pronounced dead.
 
San Ramon police officials said there was no criminal investigation into the incident.
