    In the US, that would be similar ~$190.00. Most people here would use their 3rd party dental insurance to pay for it. Unfortunately in the US, seeing the dentist for routine care can seem like a rip off. For medical, I had to pay ~$900 for my daughter's ear wax removal (took 3 appointments and I have a high deductible only medical insurance).

    That is a reasonable cost for private work here. Surprised you were not given an injection. I hope it's a good dentist that was recommended to you.
