J. Kyle House, D.D.S., F.A.A.P.D

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.


Steven J. Wohlford, D.M.D., F.A.A.P.D

A Portland native, Dr. Wohlford graduated with a D.M.D. from the Oregon Health and Science University in 2002 after receiving a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Oregon. He completed a General Practice Residency program at the University Medical Center in Fresno, California, then graduated from the prestigious Pediatric Dental Residency Program of Children's Hospital of Michigan in 2005.

Dr. Wohlford completed his Pediatric Dental Board Certification in September 2010. In addition to practicing in the Gorge, he is an Associate Professor at OHSU's Pediatric Residency Program. His affinity for children stems from working as a camp counselor when he was a teen, as he finds that kids "are more fun to work with than adults."

His favorite river for fly fishing is the Deschutes, though he knows some great spots on the White Salmon, Hood and Klickitat rivers. He likes to cook and occasionally wonders, when he prepares pulled pork and ribs in his smoker, if his neighbors are envious or about to call the fire department.


Frank Foreman, D.D.S.

Dr. Foreman has enjoyed helping kids receive their dental care for over three decades. He and his beautiful wife, Lelia, have raised five kids and greatly enjoy visiting their six grandchildren. His eldest daughter, Lucinda, is severely autistic and has been a challenge, but the encouragement of their faith has provided a joy in the journey every step of the way. An avid hiker, he enjoys listing to audio books while absorbing the scenery of the native Northwest. Go Blazers, Mariners, and Seahawks!
