Meet Our Team
Max Kerr, DDS
After breaking his tooth during a football game, Dr. Kerr’s childhood dentist met him at 11 o’clock that evening to fix his tooth so that he wouldn’t be in pain and could “still smile at the girls.” That extraordinary dental experience led him to attend the University of Texas Dental School in San Antonio — and to become a dentist who provides superior care for Cedar Park families today.
Dr. Kerr received his General Dentistry degree in 2007 and spent five years providing dental care for underserved children in San Antonio and Roswell, New Mexico. In May 2013, he decided to take a break from working in the corporate dental world, where he felt patients were treated more like numbers than people. He opened Vista Ridge Family Dentistry with the goal of creating strong relationships with his patients and the community.
Dr. Kerr is an active member of the American Dental Association and is passionate about continuing education. Through his ongoing coursework, he has acquired a strong knowledge base in Level II Conscious Sedation, Six Month Smiles® and comprehensive orthodontics. Outside of work, Dr. Kerr is passionate about personal growth through reading and exercise, but what he enjoys most of all is spending time with his supportive wife, Jeannie, and his adored daughter, Kiran.
Brandon Hedgecock, DDS
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. In 2011 he entered private practice, 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 nights sleep 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.
Dr. H is a member of ADA(American Dental Association), ADSA (American Dental Society of Anesthesiology), and the AADSM (American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine). He is passionate about ongoing education and participates in Study Clubs and takes hundreds of continuing education hours per year. His passion for learning extends outside of work, where he constantly strives to learn more and expand his skill set.
Andrew Edmonds, DMD
Dr. Edmonds’ passion for health care and his love of art and science led him to pursue a career in dentistry. After obtaining his undergraduate degree in microbiology, Dr. Edmonds completed his dental training at Western University College of Dental Medicine in California.
Since earning his dental degree, he has strived to be a continuous learner to provide his patients with the most comprehensive and up to date dentistry. He has taken over 350 hours of continued education in the last year alone, which is much more than the 12-hour annual requirement. His focus of study has been cosmetic dentistry, full mouth rehabilitation, implant dentistry, bone grafting, and sedation dentistry. Dr. Edmonds is in the process of obtaining his Master of Oral Implantology status from the California Implant Institute and his fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry.
Dr. Edmonds is known for his gentle touch, compassionate nature and knowledge of dentistry. His passion is providing excellent dentistry while helping patients overcome their dental anxiety and building a relationship with each patient. He treats every patient as he would treat his own family!
Outside the Office Dr. Edmonds enjoys being outdoors, wakeboarding, snowboarding, and traveling when ever possible. He spends his free time with his family and his two dogs.
