Filling small dips with thinset?

I am preparing to tile a laundry room floor with porcelain tile. There are a few small dips that need to deal with. I've read on this site about filling dips with concrete patch or leveling compound.

A friend said small dips can be handled with the thinset when tiling. He made it sound like the thinset will just be a little thicker at the points of dips.

Is that correct? If so, at what point is a dip big enough that I should have it filled in before applying thinset and tile?

Thanks in advance

Hi Gaetano,

It's a lot easier to fix the dips if you do it before you start tiling. How would you know exactly where they are after you spread thinset and set tiles? If the dips are shallow you can use thinset although products made for the purpose work best.
