I agree with Jalal.
The theory sounds great, but in reality the dealer has not identified a problem with your vehicle and suggested this as a remedy.
I did have a proper injector service once on a previous car. The guy cam out, removed all injectors and ran each one through a ultrasonic cleaning device. He then replaced the little filters on each one and re-installed everything. It worked out at around $20 per cylinder, but it was a long time ago! I could see the results on each injector as he cleaned each one.
For what it's worth though, I throw a bottle of Nulon "Total Fuel System Cleaner" through every once and a while (10,000kms +), which claims to clean all aspects of the fuel system (not just the injectors). I've used it in several cars and always noticed good results (and I maintain all my cars very well). At around $23 a bottle, I highly recommend it.
I just pulled my throttle body apart for a clean and thought it all looked pretty good..a little soot, but nothing to write home about...then I remembered using TFSC a few tank fulls back
