Yours quote is close to what Mr. Murphette got from Dental Creations in Harrison, a simple extraction (no stitches, nothing exotic) was $49 per tooth.

According to this: the reasonable cost for the same extraction at a dentist in this area is $125, not counting for xrays, etc...

That last extraction I had done at a dentist's office was $85.

If you have alot of teeth left, like Mr. M did, that could be a big part of the bill.
