Brandon Hedgecock, DDS
As his mother tells it, Dr. Brandon Hedgecock’s passion for dentistry began when he was barely three years old and would declare he wanted to be a dentist when he grew up. By high school, Dr. Hedgecock says he was sure. He obtained his Biology degree 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 and Cedar Park, TX dentists today, Dr. Hedgecock offers oral conscious sedation, an easy and effective way to calm your nerves before your dental appointment. However, 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 sleep better with oral appliance therapy. He has become a diplomate with the American Sleep and Breathing Academy and will soon receive the same recognition from the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine.
