Meet Our Doctors
Your Austin dentists, and our entire team at Hedgecock Dental offer the technical skills and clinical excellence you expect from a healthcare provider, and the compassionate care you expect from a friend.
Dr. Brandon Hedgecock
As his mother tells it, Dr. Brandon Hedgecock’s passion for dentistry began when he was barely 3 years old and would declare he wanted to be a dentist when he grew up. By high school, Dr. Hedgecock says he was sure, and he went on to obtain his degree in Biology from the University of Texas (hook ‘em, Horns!) and his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the UT Health Science Center in San Antonio.
After graduating, Dr. Hedgecock spent four years in Joplin, Missouri, working with a federally qualified community health center providing dental care to the underserved. He entered private practice in 2011, where he has enjoyed building better, long-lasting relationships with his patients and team.
Like some Austin dentists today, Dr. Hedgecock offers oral conscious sedation, an easy and effective way to calm your nerves before your dental appointment. Unlike many other general dentists in Austin, Dr. Brandon Hedgecock has also completed extensive training and certification in intravenous (IV) conscious sedation at Georgia Health Sciences University.
If you snore or have sleep apnea, Dr. Hedgecock can also help you get a better night’s sleep with oral appliance therapy. He is a diplomate with the American Sleep and Breathing Academy and the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine.
Dr. Hedgecock also belongs to the following professional organizations:
Dr. Hedgecock is passionate about ongoing education for himself and his fellow dentists, taking time to travel the country teaching his peers about sleep apnea treatment. To assist him in providing the highest level of teaching as an instructor, Dr. Hedgecock recently became a member of the ICOI (International Congress of Oral Implantologists), the world’s largest provider of continuing dental implant education. He knows the best way to provide his patients with the best care Austin has to offer is by continually improving on his understanding of dentistry.
Quality care is all about balance. We love Dr. Hedgecock because he truly understands that the best way to give his all at work, is to take time to pursue his passions in his off time. His favorite things can best be described with three words: kids, golf, and the UT Longhorns. When he’s not in the office or creating awesome smiles, he’s spending quality time with his son & daughter.
Always one to look for a challenge, Dr. Hedgecock also loves to hit the links for a round of golf! When it comes to football season, all he can say is a big ‘Hook em Horns!’ A former football player with the UT Longhorns, Dr. Hedgecock loves to support his alma mater every chance he gets!
Dr. Hany Ahmed
Dr. Hany Ahmed was born in Egypt and grew up in Alexandria on the coast of the Mediterranean. He received his Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) from Alexandria University, Egypt in 2007, and his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the University of Southern California in 2014. He’s completed additional training in implant dentistry and bone grafting, and he is certified in Invisalign® treatment and conscious sedation.
Dr. Ahmed takes pride in being able to comfort his patients and provide them with top-notch dentistry that produces satisfying results. He is particularly fond of improving esthetics through dentistry because he believes smiles are the key to the heart.
Outside of the office, Dr. Ahmed enjoys being outdoors and is passionate about traveling and experiencing different cultures. He likes to swim and play tennis, squash, and soccer. When he’s relaxing at home, he likes to read and watch television series. His wife, Heidi, is an MD Radiologist who also grew up in Egypt. He has two brothers, one is a Pharmacist that lives in Victoria, TX, and the other is a Civil Engineer who lives in Kuwait. He is the uncle of two nieces and two nephews.
Dr. Ahmed has been on a couple of dental mission trips to treat underserved populations in Mexico, and he aspires to go on many more mission trips in the future.
Dr. Jenny Tran
Dr. Jenny Tran grew up in Saskatchewan Canada where she knew she wanted to become a dentist by the time she was in 8th grade. She went to the University of Saskatchewan for both her undergrad as well as her dental degree. Upon finishing dental school she completed a 1-year hospital residency where she received advanced training in general dentistry, as well as IV sedation, and surgical procedures. She then started her own practice in downtown Saskatoon, which she continues to maintain today.
Dr. Tran’s passion for dentistry is in helping people become healthier and happier. She loves how dentistry can truly improve a patient’s life. She is also passionate about continued personal and professional growth and has completed hundreds upon hundreds of hours of continuing education to further enhance her ability to provide life-changing dentistry including comprehensive and cosmetic dentistry, botox, Invisalign, implants, and sedation. She is a graduate of the prestigious Kois Center and utilizes her knowledge and expertise to help patients look at the entire mouth as one big system, and problem solves how to improve it.
When she isn’t in the office or at a course Dr. Tran enjoys physical activity and the outdoors. She is a former competitive weightlifter and loves hiking, snowboarding, dancing, and golfing. She travels often to different parts of the world and nothing excites her more than an amazing meal with a great glass of wine. Dr. Tran also loves her kitchen where she is particularly fond of baking and also enjoys learning how to cook different meals, especially traditional Vietnamese dishes from her grandma.
