One of the main things that we use and we love is our laser. It's called Solea. It's a CO2 laser and what it allows us to do is the majority of our work without having to numb kids. When they come in, we put some safety goggles on them and then this laser, while that works, while that cuts the tooth and gets rid of the decay, it also numbs the tooth. It makes it a great experience for kids, where they don't have to go home with a numb lip or tongue and they don't have to worry about the shot, which makes their life easier and makes my life easier, so I don't have to give those shots. That's one of the main things. In the occasion that we do need to numb someone, we have a computer assisted anesthesia delivery system. You can numb the single tooth and the computer kind of controls the flow of the anesthetic and that makes the experience a little bit better. They also don't have to go home all numb on their lip and stuff like that.
