Kal Khaled, a dentist and co-owner of Southdown Dental in Mississauga, said his practice began to accept the two most popular forms of crypto – bitcoin and ethereum – in May as a way to reach some of his young clientele.
“Some of them were kind of crypto-rich and cash-poor, so to speak,” Dr. Khaled said. “You’d have a young fellow with $200,000 worth of crypto and maybe like $200 in the bank.”
He said that the move has generated a lot of talk among his patients, though so far less than 10 have used crypto to pay for a procedure.
