Hi all, I went to a dentist recently to get a broken molar extracted. He refused to extract the tooth before I got a deep cleaning. He wanted to do the whole mouth and charge me $1250 for it. The tooth extraction would have been covered under Denti-Cal. This sounded pretty fishy to me so I just left. Is it ever required to get a deep cleaning before extracting a tooth? I've searched the web and haven't found anything to back the dentist's claim.
