First, this area is insanely expensive in general.
Second, this is with a board certified dental specialist who works with a VTS-Dental tech.
Third, I paid ~$2,500 for Rascal's dental with full mouth xrays and multiple extractions December of last year at this place.
Fourth, if I could find someone I trusted (aka, had good reviews from people I know) that would do it cheaper, I absolutely would. Unfortunately, I've tried to price shop and I'm not finding anything much cheaper.

A friend with a cocker (first dental, rescue, age 8ish) found a great vet and thought she'd found a cheaper price, all said and done, his is going to run ~$2,000 with xrays and extractions as well.

Another friend went to a different specialist and still paid very close to $2,000 per dog.

I wish it was cheaper around here!
