My DD just had dental surgery. It was with general anesthesia at the surgery center. It was $2600. Our insurance covered the cost.

She has 1 extraction, 2 pulpotomies, 2 restorations and 10 cavities filled.

My other daughter has had the same surgery (from years of cyclic vomiting) and it was $3000. She had more work done because the vomiting ruined all her molars. they all needed crowns.

I think the average is $2-3000. We had several opinions as well and they all said the same thing.

The one thing I will say is do not consent to general anesthesia in a dental office. Make sure it is done at a surgery center or hospital with a pediatric anesthesiologist.
