It's not personal - it's about providing safe and effective care and billing for such in certain circumstances, such as working on the teeth of a screaming child or adult. Whether you noticed it or not, your dentist and his or her staff were assessing your child and intervening in order to deal with the problem at hand. And it sounds like they did a great job if they fixed the tooth in just 5 minutes!
No matter what pediatric dentist you see, they will use - and you will be billed for - behavior management, if it's an issue.
This is accepted standard from the ADA and AAPD.
In the hospital we use a "scoring system" for patients' needs, and we also get credit if the patient, or a family member, requires specific extra time from the nurse because it does take more resources to do so, and those resources always have to be accounted for. That is the way health care is today.
Your dentist did nothing wrong here. He is entitled to be compensated for the specialized care he provided. He and his staff have required specialized training in behavior techniques, and may even have yearly testing on it for accreditation purposes, etc.
