Dr. Auld’s dental career started in her homeland of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Following high school graduation, she attended a five year program at the University of Mogi das Cruzes School of Dentistry, in Sao Paulo, and graduated with honors.  Upon graduation, she worked at a private dental practice, in addition to volunteering dental work for the Rotary Club of Sao Paulo to help the underserved population. After relocating to the United States, she attended the University of Missouri- Kansas-City School of Dentistry for 3 years in order to obtain her U.S. and Kansas dental license.

In August 2007, Dr. Auld joined the dental practice of Dr. Steven Thompson, who became her mentor and whose dental philosophy of treatment she follows to this day. She continues to practice dentistry at the same office, Ottawa Kansas Dentistry, and now has the pleasure of working with Dr. Jessica Johnson.

Dr. Auld had the honor of accepting the Ottawa Herald’s “Best of the Best” Dentist award in 2015, 2016 and 2017. She attributes her achievements to hard work and the support of her amazing family, friends, patients and co-workers.

“I truly believe dentistry can not only change a person’s smile, but can also change their lives by improving their confidence, self-esteem and health. The expression on someone’s face when they see their new smile is very rewarding. My goal is to build relationships with my patients and help them maintain a beautiful and healthy smile”, says Dr. Auld.

Dr. Auld enjoys traveling, reading, dancing, and jewelry making. When not practicing dentistry, you will find her spending time with her family and friends.
