Im not sure about your area, but here in so CA, I paid $1000. So that sounds like a deal to me!

I was quoted a price like that.

But I decided to do a regular cleaning. And my pockets went down alot from just a couple of good regular cleanings for about $100 each.

Note: the office that wanted to do the deep cleaning said I had several 6 & 7mm pockets. I did one regular cleaning and the next dentist only found one 6 and the rest were 2,3, or 4.......so either my pockets healed quick from that one regular cleaning or the deep cleaning place lied to me about those pocket depths.

My dentist also charged a little over $800, I think that price is about the going rate.
