Vivan Nguyen is a licensed denturist and one of the owners here at Hayven Dentures. Working with the team at Hayven Dentures, Vivan's goal is to create a place that is of the highest professional standard and be a place that is both comfortable and welcoming to her staff and patients.
A beautiful smile affects a person's confidence as well as their everyday function. Knowing how much a great pair of dentures can drastically change a person's life, Vivan prioritizes her patient's present and long-term concerns and works hard to make sure her patients receive the best care and treatment that they deserve.
Vivan graduated from the University of Toronto with Honors in Bachelor of Arts and Science, specializing in Human Biology and Psychology. She returned to school and attended George Brown College, graduating on the Dean's List for all three years of the denturism program.
With the advances in research and technology in the denture field, Vivan understands the importance of Continuing Education to find the best solutions to common denture problems. Together with Hayes, she has traveled the world to further her knowledge and continue improving her denture skillset.
Along with Hayes, Vivan is the first denturist in Ontario to be certified in the Suction Denture SEMCD (Suction Effective Mandibular Denture) technique in June of 2017. She traveled to Vancouver Island to learn from one of the three SEMCD instructors in BC. Vivan was then asked to stay as a denturist in the same clinic and went on to work alongside her mentors for 2 years.
Vivan traveled to Japan in 2018 to learn and obtain her certification in the OM Denture System (Occlusal Map). In 2019, she obtained her BPS (Biofunctional Prosthetic System) certification to further enhance her skills. Altogether, the different techniques and knowledge allow Vivan to personalize each denture in function and esthetics to each of her individual patients.
Vivan takes the utmost pride in her work. She not only wants patients to receive the best care that they deserve, but also be informed about their own oral health and make educated decisions on their well-being.
She is passionate about her field of trade but outside of work, Vivan is trying her hand at making resin charms, writing short stories and spending her time outdoors.
My experience with Hayven was a positive one. Everyone was so pleasant and reassuring. They take great care to get everything just right. I never had to wait more than 10 min. for my appointment. I would recommend them 100 percent. Thanks Hayven for everything.
Following dental surgery I had immediate dentures installed at another denture clinic. Unfortunately, right from the start, they were poorly fitting and despite many return visits, the problems continued and worsened. The final straw occurred when my top denture literally dropped out of my mouth when I was speaking. Because the dentures were so loose, I had been using dental adhesive on both the top and bottom but unfortunately the dentures released as soon as I started eating and soft food entered under both dentures. As a result, I was unable to eat regular food and was limited to very soft items, like eggs, soup, yogurt etc. I needed help and following much research and checking with various people, I was so fortunate to find Hayven Dentures where I spoke with Cherie, the business administrator, and made an appointment. Following a consultation with Hayes, I felt immediately at ease and very impressed with the length of time he spent checking and discussing my issue. I was very relieved when he identified that the main cause of my problems was because the denture bite was misaligned. He corrected the problem on the upper denture and adjusted the lower one to the point that using adhesive I can now eat proper food and my denture stays in place! I was also informed that Hayven Dentures install a temporary immediate denture following dental surgery and after 4 months the permanent dentures are fitted and installed, The denture clinic I originally went to did not offer this and unfortunately I was not aware of this option, therefore permanent dentures were installed. I sincerely wish I had been referred to Hayven Denture Clinic initially and had this happened, I know I could have been spared a lot of the problems, money, stress and time spent returning weekly to the other clinic. I am so grateful and thankful to have found Hayven Denture Clinic and Hayes and I plan to have further work done there and I am very happy and confident in recommending them.
I had partial dentures made 3 years ago. The staff at Hayven were wonderful from the initial phone call all the way to the creation of dentures. They were courteous, caring and made you feel at ease and comfortable. The dentures have been wonderful. I have had 2 annual follow ups since then at no charge. I would not go anywhere else.
My experience with Hayven Dentures has certainly exceeded my expectations. The staff was warm and friendly and more than happy to answer any questions or concerns that I had. I’m very satisfied with the end result. Thank you Haven Dentures. Eric David
Thanks to the wonderful staff and Denturist’s at Hayden Dentures for helping me in a time of need. I am from Victoria BC and experienced problems with my dentures while on vacation in St. Catharines. The Hayden group was able to quickly fix my problem which allowed me to fully enjoy my time here. Highly recommended for their professionalism, skill and kindness
