Meet the Team
Dr. Paul Ranney
Dr. Heather Wilson
Dr. Hedge has had an interesting past few years. He met his wife Dr Kathy Frazar, of Houston, Texas many years ago and was married in 2008. Since then he has been commuting from Houston to Cincinnati three times a month. He has been looking for a dentist to take over the practice for a few years now. Good candidates were hard to find… Until late this year. Dr. Hedge found not one, but two great dentists to take things over. D.r Paul Ranney and Dr. Heather Wilson are both graduates of the U of L dental school and were best friends through school. Dr. Hedge will be working with them for the next few months to acquaint them with our systems and insure a smooth transition.The rest of the team of Corine, Kim, Loree, Shelley and Stacey will still be here
As Dr. Ranney and Dr. Wilson transition into practice, they will work very hard to gain your trust and confidence. They sincerely enjoy the field of dentistry. They believe their enthusiasm and energy will assure you of their strong desire to take the best care possible of the their patients.
Dr. Ranney was born in Louisville, KY and grew up in Southern Indiana. He received his B.S. in Biology while attending Indiana University. He graduated from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, where he met and became friends with classmate Dr. Heather Wilson. Dr. Ranney loves to travel and practice underwater photography and scuba diving, a passion he gained while doing research in marine biology.
Dr. Wilson grew up in Florence, KY and attended Northern Kentucky University where she received a bachelor’s degree in Biology. She graduated from dental school at the University of Louisville and completed a general practice residency at the University of Kentucky.
