I have been going to my dentist for about 18 months and I went to him to get a tooth pulled because I had a root canal years ago but part of the root

More details to this question:
Was still in my jaw so we agreed to pull. Then he put some p. R. P. in my mouth to prepare for The implant we discussed. I then went back as instructed at a later date and when I got there he was waiting in the consult room and I said I'm just here for my X-ray and he pointed to the machine and his assistants took the picture. I was then told I would get a call later that day. I had it done on feb 23 and I called a few days later and they said the would get back too me. Then 9 days later I received a letter saying they no longer wanted to treat me and would not give an explanation. Please help me and walk me through how I should handle this.

There is something missing here as dentists and doctors don't arbitrarily refuse to treat patients as a general rule. You left out the part where there was some controversy or accusations made some where - as THAT is the source of such issues 99% of the time. Other than that - you will need to see a new dentist.
