There is a significant portion of the population that doesn't go to the dentist because of anxiety or fear and we try to address that. I think the atmosphere in our practice, where we're, we're very friendly, we're very patient friendly, I think that that helps a lot. I also think that discussions you can have with people, what to expect, what you can feel, what you can experience, is very, very, helpful in helping people feel more comfortable at the dentist.
And then if people are still anxious and a little bit fearful we have different methods that we can use to help people relax. We have nitrous oxide available to people, there is different types of sedation techniques that we can use to help people relax and feel more comfortable and we can achieve the dentistry. And it works out great for people.
