After obtaining his undergraduate degree of Honors Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience and Integrative Biology (Specialist) at University of Toronto, he continued his studies with a graduate degree of Environmental Science. He 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 he treats and cares for, he searched high and low for solutions to the common denture problems that arise. Hayes is officially the first denturist in Ontario to obtain both certifications to practice Suction Effective Mandibular Complete Denture (SEMCD) and CQR Denture techniques. These two certifications improved his techniques which helped him provide dentures that stay in the mouth without the use of denture glue or dental implants whilst allowing the wearer to have a biofunctional bite.
As an associate of Lawrence Village Family Dentistry, he continues to practice with the ideology of, “collaborating with great dental professionals allowing for the situation of providing high quality dentures to improve or maintain the quality of life for the wearer”.
