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:
- ADA (American Dental Association)
- ADSA (American Dental Society of Anesthesiology)
- AADSM (American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine)
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!
