It sounds like the dentist has poor bed side manner and is rude. Thankfully, it was a just a bad experience and you were able to get the procedure finished and there wasn't any further injury. You could pursue a case, but the damages you could recover would be very limited, if at all.
You would have to show the Dentist deviated from the standard level of care and because of his malpractice, you suffered additional damages. You usually need to hire another medical expert to make that opinion and it sometimes can be costly. These can be difficult cases. This Dentist clearly acted poorly, but the question still remains whether he committed malpractice. You should consult a local attorney to further investigate for you.
