Operations Manager

Greetings, I’m Michael! Originally hailing from the vibrant city of El Paso, Texas, I’ve embarked on an exciting journey that has led me to my passion for managing dental operations. Since earning my Bachelors in Business Management, I’ve been devoted to this fulfilling career path, starting in 2009.

In 2014, I embraced a new chapter in life by relocating to the beautiful city of Austin, accompanied by my amazing husband, Angel, and our three adorable pugs: Lila, Lady, and Whoopi. Austin’s lively music scene, picturesque outdoor spots, and warm-hearted community have made it an incredible place to call home.

Beyond my professional pursuits, I find solace and joy in spending time outdoors, reveling in music’s melodies, and creating cherished memories with loved ones during gatherings at home. As an avid traveler, I hold an unwavering goal to explore different corners of the world annually, seeking adventure and cultural enrichment.

Life, to me, is an exhilarating journey filled with opportunities, and I cherish each moment to the fullest. At Hedgecock Dental, I’m privileged to contribute my expertise and be part of this extraordinary team, ensuring our patients receive the best care possible. Let’s embark on this exciting dental voyage together!

Lead Registered Dental Assistant

Hey fabulous folks, it’s your dental diva, Amber, rocking the title of Lead Registered Dental Assistant at the one and only Hedgecock Dental! My mission? To turn that dental chair into a cozy throne and ensure your pearly whites are on full display with a grin that can outshine the sun.

I’ve been diving into the world of dental wizardry since 2003, armed with a degree in Health Science, and soon to add “Bachelor of Nursing” to my superhero resume in the next two years. Because let’s face it, knowledge is not just power; it’s the secret sauce to a dazzling smile.
Austin’s been my stomping ground since the year 2000, and you’ll catch me breaking a sweat in the great outdoors, mastering the art of hot yoga, and cycling my heart out indoors. Oh, and meet my partner in crime, Brooklyn the doodle—we’re the dynamic duo causing a ruckus at the dog park.
When I’m not perfecting your smile, I’m a globe-trotting foodie who savors the flavors of every culture and cherishes the amazing people I meet along the way. And did I mention I’ve got two mini jet-setters who love to explore the world with me?
So, buckle up, beautiful souls! My goal isn’t just to give you a radiant smile; it’s to make you feel like a dental superstar, leaving our domain looking and feeling nothing short of fabulous. Let the dental adventures begin!

Registered Dental Assistant

Hey there, party people! I’m Theresa, and I burst into this world on the 4th of July—talk about a grand entrance! My personality is like a firecracker; once you get a taste, you can’t help but catch the contagious vibes, just like my smile that could light up a room.
Originally a salty soul hailing from the Galveston area (just 45 minutes southeast of Houston), I decided to spice things up and boogie my way over to Austin a few years ago. Now, I’m living the high life here with my fiancé, two mini-me’s, and our two fur babies. Austin’s been treating us well, especially in the culinary department—yum, oh yum!
By day, I’m a Registered Dental Assistant with over 8 years of experience, but I’m not stopping there—I’ve got my sights set on becoming the superhero of dental hygiene, a Registered Dental Hygienist. Caring for my patients is my jam, and I’m on a mission to make every dental experience outstanding, professional, comforting, and, of course, filled with compassion. I believe in building connections with my patients, like creating a masterpiece of understanding one tooth at a time.
As a born teacher, I’m here to share my dental wisdom, sprinkle it like confetti, and instill the fundamentals of this fantastic profession. Because let’s face it, every mouth is a unique masterpiece, and communication is key—just like finding the perfect dance move at a July 4th barbecue. So, join me on this dental adventure, where we laugh, learn, and floss our way to dental greatness!

But that’s not all. When she’s not dazzling patients with her dental prowess, Samantha moonlights as a dog whisperer in training. Yep, you heard it right—she’s on the path to becoming a certified dog trainer. Because why just brighten human smiles when you can also turn tails into wiggles?

Her hobbies? Oh, just your typical superhero stuff like cooking up delicious delights, turning her backyard into a floral masterpiece, sewing up a storm, gliding on roller skates like it’s the disco era, and conquering trails with not one, not two, but three furry sidekicks.

So, if you’re ready for a dental experience that’s not only teeth-tickling but also tail-wagging, Samantha is your go-to gal at Hedgecock Dental. Because who said dental appointments can’t be a blend of fun, laughter, and a sprinkle of doggy magic? Welcome to the Samantha Smile Revolution!

Andria scaled e1705082043166


Implant Coordinator

Howdy, y’all!  I’m Andria, your friendly neighborhood Texan hailing from the sunny city of El Paso! I’ve always believed in the magic of a good ol’ smile—it’s like a superpower that can turn any frown upside down. Now, I’m thrilled to be part of the Hedgecock Dental crew as the Implant Coordinator, working my magic to boost those grins!

Back in 2012, I snagged my Surgical Technology degree. It all started when a mischievous sports injury led me to the operating table. Seeing people heal and helping them through the process became my jam. Thanks to the incredible team here, I get to merge my love for healing with creating beautiful smiles. I’m a firm believer that a smile can not only light up someone’s day but transform your entire world!
Outside these dental walls, catch me camping under the stars, dabbling in paint at a quirky art class, owning the dance floor, or scouting for the next great addition to my ever-growing library. These are the things that keep my spirits high, so I can bring my A-game to the office!

Can’t wait to catch up at your next appointment. Be sure to bring your best food and book recommendations—we’re in for a fantastic time together! Let’s make that smile of yours the star of the show, shining brighter than ever!

Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello, I’m Dani, your extraordinary Dental Hygienist at Hedgecock Dental, where we believe oral care should be enjoyable!
In 2017, I proudly earned my Dental Hygiene degree from Texas State Technical College, and since then, I’ve been dedicated to brightening smiles. After graduating, I ventured to Austin to kickstart my professional journey.

Beyond perfecting radiant smiles, my evenings are spent at the stables with my cherished equine companion, Prince. We’ve been a team for over 17 years, and he’s truly a gentle giant.
My commitment extends to providing each patient with a meticulous and gentle cleaning, ensuring your dental experience is not only exceptional but also enjoyable. I’m excited about the opportunity to meet you and make your dental journey a fun and exciting one!
