  Steven Thompson, DDS, PA

 

Dr. Thompson has been active in private practice since 1976. Dr. Thompson is a Kansas   University graduate who attended dental school in Kansas City at the UMKC School of Dentistry. He was united in marriage to Jill Wiechman in 1971 and they now have three sons and three grandchildren.

Dr. Thompson was active in sports during his High School days in Fredonia, Kansas and still maintains a highly active lifestyle. His enjoyment for hiking, skiing, hunting, and fishing, is only exceeded by his passion for photography. He and Jill maintain an active relationship with the Westminster Presbyterian Church here in Ottawa. His personal opinion about achieving health and happiness is that these elements are first to be found through a spiritual commitment. He holds closely to the theory that we all have special gifts that need to be exposed. It is our obligation to assist each other in recognition and proliferation of those gifts.

Personal Statement: I am tremendously thankful for the years that have been given to this dental practice in Ottawa, Kansas. We have been blessed with so many of our patients maintaining their treatment within this office for so many long years.

Ana Auld, DDS

I appreciate this opportunity to introduce myself.   My name is Dr. Ana Auld, and I joined Dr. Thompson’s practice in July 2007. My actual dental career started in my homeland of Brazil, where I was born and raised. I first graduated from the University of Mogi das Cruzes, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 1995, where I worked as a teacher’s assistant at the Pediatric Department for two years. I also volunteered as a dental practitioner with the Rotary International for one year, and worked as a dentist at private practices and dental clinics before moving to the United States in 2000. In order to work as a dentist in the US, I needed to obtain a US license, which meant passing all written and clinical dental boards, as well as, having additional education from a US dental school. So while working as a dental assistant, I applied for the UMKC School of Dentistry, and got admitted in 2003. Upon graduation from UMKC in 2006, I took my first job as a dentist in the United States in a dental office in Kansas City, and a year later, I joined Dr. Thompson’s staff in Ottawa, Kansas.

I truly enjoy listening to my patients’ needs and helping each patient to achieve their treatment for a beautiful smile. I not only love to change patients’ smiles, but I also believe I can change peoples’ lives.

I am an active member of the Fifth District Dental Society, and I am always striving to improve my skills to stay current on the latest technology.

When not practicing dentistry, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful daughter, family and friends.
