Patching dimples in concrete floor

I have just removed the carpet and tack strips from a concrete floor where we are going to install laminate. The removal of the tack strips left dimples in the concrete all along the walls. Should I fill ( patch) these dimples? If so, what should I use for the fill?

They should not be big enough to matter. But you can get a cementitious based floor filler at most lumber yards if you want to fill them. Don't use gypsum based, it won't last.

That is what I was thinking. They are pretty small, and being next to the wall won't have any weight on them. Thanks.
