What's a mirate?

At Thorson Dentistry, we wanted to add a level of fun and adventure that you couldn’t find at other dental practices. That’s why we created the Mirate (pronounced MY-rit). It’s a unique combination of a mermaid and a pirate.

The Mirate was designed to inspire the imaginations of the little ones inside our office. For Dr. Thorson, working with youngsters is the best part of the practice – and she loves hearing the wonderful things that come out of their mouths.

“Admittedly, I’m a kid at heart,” says Dr. Thorson. “When I was a little girl, I always loved mermaids and, for me, the pirate is the male counterpart. Both girls and boys have something to relate to, which helps them be more comfortable at the dentist.”
