Hayes Leung, MESc, DD

Your denturist Hayes Leung is one of the owners of Hayven Dentures. He created this clinic to provide a future for his family and a home for his employees and patients.

Hayes believes in the notion that serving the public with quality denture care should be rewarded. With the funds being obtained through his work, he tries to care for the well-being of his aging parents. At the same time he cares for his own family.

He also knows the love and care he receives from his patients is what keeps the clinic alive. By hiring employees and providing a friendly and comfortable working environment is his way of returning his appreciation. He continues to improve his clinical skills so that when patients come in, they are always feeling happy and relaxed. His patients know that the treatments they receive improve their health.

Education
Hayes graduated from University of Toronto with Honors in Bachelors of Arts and Science. His degree specialized in Neurobiology and Integrative Biology. He later obtained a Masters degree in Environmental Science.

He later attended George Brown College and graduated at the top of his class which was later recognized with the “A.J. (Jim) McGuire Memorial award” presented by the Denturist Association of Ontario.

Ever since graduating from school he has continued his studies in pursuit of improving his clinical and technical skills of constructing dentures to improve the quality of life for the wearer. Through his dedication to all who he treats and cares for, he searched high and low for solutions to the common denture problems that arise.

Certifications

Hayes went to obtain his SEMCD Suction Denture (Suction Effective Mandibular Complete Denture) Certification in June 2017. Through his own investigation and motivation to improve the lives of all he treats he went to Duncan, BC for this certification. He later obtained his CQR Denture Instructor certification in Houston, TX, October 2017.

Hayes is also BPS (Biofunctional Prosthetic System) certified which he obtained in November 2017. To further solidify his denture skills he went to Fukuyama, Japan in October 2018 to learn about and obtain the certification for the OM Denture System (Occlusal Map).

Hayes is officially the first denturist in Ontario to obtain the certifications to practice SEMCD, CQR, and OM Denture techniques. These three techniques helped him provide dentures that stay in the mouth a lot better whilst allowing the wearer to have a biofunctional bite.

Hayes currently continues to learn and practice implant denture treatments and techniques.

How He Became a Denturist

Hayes has a strong affinity to the world of dentistry ever since he was at the age of 8. He had frequent visits not only for dental hygiene but due to his love for eating and being an avid candy muncher, he had many occurrences of cavities. He has been submerged into the dental environment, allowing him to see the beauty and enjoyment in helping others smile and eat again.

After obtaining his undergraduate degree of Honors Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience and Integrative Biology (Specialist), he continued his studies with a graduate degree of Environmental Science. It was through working as an Environmental Consultant that he met a colleague who was friends with a denturist, Linda Veal, DD. After interviewing and talking with Linda, Hayes had a broader view and perspective of the dental world. While facing hardships at the time, he looked back on life to see where he would truly be happy and Denturism was the answer.

Giving Back to the Community

Hayes currently helps teach new and upcoming denturists at George Brown College. He began teaching in September of 2017 where many students still talk and look up to him. As he always does, he gives his best in educating and pushing the students to provide their best in quality dentures.

He takes time off to go to Nursing Homes and Senior Resident Homes to educate and help those in need. He began providing educational lectures and seminars since June 2016 and has helped many with their denture needs.

As a founder of Hayven Dentures, he has developed the practice to have an ideology of, “providing high quality dentures to improve or maintain the quality of life for the wearer” and to “stay on top of new techniques and concepts to provide a suitable treatment options that are customized to the denture wearers.”

So impressed with the warmth and caring service! They make you feel at home. Never pushed for a sale, repaired at a great price and great workmanship! I ended up moving forward of my own accord for a new partial plate! I would highly recommend this outstanding group!

Great place to get dentures serviced. My grandpa was having problems eating salad and biting his cheeks all the time after getting new dentures made in downtown St. Catharines. We couldn't deal with seeing him in agony so we took him to see Hayes and Vivan at Hayven Dentures. He is now eating everything he likes again. Thank you!

I had a great experience with Hayven Dentures. From my first appointment to my last fitting, they take the time to really listen and make sure you are satisfied and comfortable. I had 2 upper teeth missing due to medication I was taking. It affected my smile and my confidence. Since receiving my partial, I am much more confident and am not afraid to smile as wide as I want to! Thank you to all the staff at Hayven Dentures for the amazing service!!

Thanks for the new smile. Thanks for making the process of getting everything done so quickly and professionally. Most of all thanks for making the whole procedure feel easy and actually fun. Totally satisfied with my new dentures and the fact that I have no discomfort or issues as I had with my originals from 30( feels like 300) years ago. Hayes and his staff will give the best care in handling any and all denture needs. Much Thanks for giving me back my smile. Dave C

Having to deal with 30 plus year old denture and general neglect of my teeth. When the time came to remedy the situation I must say that my choice to have the work done by Hayden dental was a good one. Not only did they do a excellent job throughout the whole process but they staff and Hayes made it a lot of fun also. the job was done so well that I was able to munch a cob of corn with absolutely NO problem despite their recommendation that I give myself time to get used to my new teeth. I can say that I have no hesitation recommending Hayden Dental for anyone needing new dentures or denture support. Thanks muchly to Hayes and all for making me smile again.

After breaking two teeth, one being the tooth my upper partial attached to, I was devastated as I was no longer able to wear my plate, nor eat or even smile.I went to Hayven Clinic on an emergency appt the very next day and was immediately welcomed by Cherie, who took a very thorough history, then next Hayes and Judy. I was absolutely thrilled at the professional, kind and gentle approach provided by by all.My plate is repaired better then when it was originally made! It fits very comfortably and looks awesome.I have been to other denture clinics but will never go anywhere else now. I am having my full dentures done here by Hayes and Judy and I know they will be excellent.This clinic's team. Hayes, Judy and Cherie are outstanding - when you are doing something as important as having dentures made, have it done right by the right team the first time!

I found Hayven Dentures when I googled denturist’s in Niagara, when I called, & the receptionist Christine answered she was very helpful in answering my qustion’s. From my first initial visit for a consultation I knew I had made the right choice going to Hayven Denture Clinic. Hayes is a wonderful caring professional, Christine his receptionist /assistant is a gem. If you need denture’s or looking to have your current denture’s replaced as I did, you will have made the right choice by calling Hayven dentures.

I originally got my dentures from Hayes early this year but recently came back because my dog got a hold of my denture and cracked it in two. After fixing it, it felt exactly like it did when he first made them. It's been almost a year and they still look and feel brand new. My last set was from another denturist and it was cheaper and by the first year I could already see some wear and tear. Hayes is very professional and the quality of his dentures are worth it!

I had to write this review as it was a very long time since I've had my mouth taken care of as great as this place. I had dentures made from many other denture clinics and dental offices. I have gone through many different treatment options. Needless to say, I went through many adjustments, pain and to no avail I could not eat. I was very doubtful Hayes would be able to help me but I tried his suction dentures. I am now able to eat again after all these years. I highly recommend Hayven Dentures from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you Hayven Dentures!!!Hayes replaced my I’ll-fitting dentures with suction dentures that stay in place. What a difference!I am now able to eat foods that I avoided before like steak, apples and corn on the cob.Because of my experience at Hayven Dentures, I now know that when considering new dentures, it is so important to choose a clinician that will provide the right fit and bite of your new dentures.I highly recommend going to see Hayes who is a very professional, caring and knowledgeable denturist!

We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to Dr.Hayes Leung at Hayven Dentures at 289 Glendale Ave. for his excellent work and dedication to his patients. My husband was suffering with ill fitting dentures made by another Denturist that were causing such discomfort that it affected his ability to eat and speak properly. W decided to start over with a new Denturist, From our first visit to Hayes we were treated with kindness and compassion. We had full confidence in his ability to help Peter and were richly rewarded. The dentures he made for him were a perfect fit the first time with no adjustments necessary. After months of suffering it felt like he was given a new lease on life.A special thank you to Christine, his office manager, who was always so welcoming, efficient and helpful.They make a great team! We would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of his services.

I walked into the denture clinic this afternoon with a broken upper partial. Three hours later I walked out with a repaired partial that fit better than it did originally. Dr Hayes was fantastic! He adjusted my partial until I was happy and comfortable with it. The receptionist, Christine, was wonderful and helpful as well. I hope this will be my only problem with my partial but if I do need it repaired or adjusted again, I will be returning to Dr Hayes. Thank you Dr Hayes!

Dr. Hayes Leung at the Glendale Office in St. Catharines is extremely nice to deal with, very confident and patient when fitting or relining dentures. I have had dentures for over 50 years and have seen many Denture clinic personal and would recommend Dr. Leung and Haven Clinics to anyone needing their services

I had a great experience at Hayven Dentures. They were patient and took the time to explain the procedure thoroughly for my mouth guard. Their attention to detail was great as they made sure the fit was optimal so that my jaw alignment was not affected.

Hayes at Hayven Dentures was able to help my brother where previous professionals couldn't. The last set he owned constantly hurt him which led to way too many adjustments and they were always loose. We are very glad we found this gemstone denturist and will not forget such wonderful experience.

I had a very positive experience with Hayven Dentures today. My elderly mother broke her denture yesterday and as I live in another city and unable to get to her right away I called Hayven and the denturist went to the nursing home , picked up the denture , repaired it and returned it to her later in the day. The receptionist was very helpful in arranging this and I am very happy with the excellent service and compassion I experienced with them today.

Hayes from Hayven Dentures is very friendly and patient with my mother when she needed new dentures. During the whole process, Hayes was available to meet my mother at her home and answer all our questions. My mother's dentures were worn and they often fell out while she was eating. Hayven Dentures made her dentures fit so well that she can eat with no worries. Overall the experience was fabulous and I would recommend Hayven Dentures to everyone needing dentures.

I found Hayven Dentures on Facebook and decided to have complete dentures made by them. My journey began at the end of May and today, July 7th, I sit here with comfortable complete dentures that I'm thrilled with. I've had so many compliments from family and friends on how real they look and I no longer have to cover my mouth when I smile/laugh. My situation involved having teeth removed and immediate dentures same day. It was very painful at first and Hayes (Denturist) did everything in his power to alleviate the pain and his wonderful receptionist Christine followed up with me every step of the way . Hayes is so friendly and is definitely a master of his craft. I highly recommend Hayven Dentures.Sincerely,Sandra Laflamme 7/7/2018
