The clinic set-up had 33 working dental students. The fragrance used in this study was Lavender and Citrus Flavor of Freshmatic® Ultra Automatic Sprays, Air Wick®, USA.

There is no significant difference between these three fragrance at P < 0.05 level in the procedure acceptance for the patient (F [2, 57] = 0.935 P = 0.398). Hence, the groups were not significant.
