Can I use Sentinel and Frontline at the same time?

Just moved and got a new vet. He sells sentinel, and it sounds good because it combines the heartworm preventative and the flea sterilization. I am in the Austin area and we definitely have flees around here during most of the year. Would it be OK to combine frontline (for flees and ticks) with the sentinel? I know it seems a bit much but they do different things. Thoughts?
Thanks!

My vet was fine with that and even suggested I do that for my flea bite allergic dog.

Yes, it's fine. You do know that Frontline Plus sterilizes fleas too, right? Is Sentinel the only heartworm preventive he sells? Since you're using Frontline (and I assume it's the Plus), you would get the same amount of prevention with a "regular" heartworm preventive like Interceptor (the heartworm portion of Sentinel) or Heartgard.

I do for Lucy. The vet has Dory on Interceptor, because he's going to quit carrying Sentinel, but I'm going to start ordering it online for both.
