Our Pediatric Dentists

Dr. J. Kyle House, DDS, FAAPD

J. Kyle House, D.D.S.received his D.D.S. degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and served as a General Dentist in the US Army. While stationed in Giessen, Germany, he was given the opportunity to treat children and discovered that pediatrics was clearly his favorite field. He attended his Pediatric Dental Residency at Madigan Army Medical Center, Fort Lewis, Washington and the University of Washington. After leaving the Army, he spent five years as the Director of Pediatric Oral Medicine at Scott & White Hospital Systems in Temple, Texas. Dr. House completed his Pediatric Dental Board Certification in April 1996. In 1999, he moved to Oregon to open his private practice in Hood River, which has expanded to five clinics (three in Oregon and two in Washington).

Dr. House's main concern is advocacy and access to care for children. He has served on numerous local, state, regional and national organizations that work to improve children's access to dental care, and has testified on behalf of children on a national level, providing medical information to lawmakers. In addition, Dr. House is a Consultant to the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and has assisted in providing their Oral Clinical Exams since 2006.

Dr. House enjoys being an active part of the community and spending time with his wife, Jill, and his three daughters. His latest project is developing a vineyard and learning about winemaking and viniculture. He likes being outdoors and loves to cook, creating imaginative breakfasts, and – like a true Texan – can explain the critical differences between grilling and barbecue.

My name is Shane Schmidt and I graduated from dental school in 2010. I worked as a general dentist in New Mexico and Texas before specializing in pediatric dentistry. Pediatric dentistry is what I am passionate about and I am excited to use my skills to serve the kids in north east Oregon. I am originally from the North West and am happy to return after many years away. Most of my time is spent on my profession, family, and faith, and when opportunity permits, I love to participate in watersports.
