Vicson Leung

Vicson Leung R.D.T. Denturist

Registered Dental Technician (RDT, Denturist)

Vicson Leung has been providing quality denturist care in Vancouver for over 10 years. He is the in-house denturist and denture professional at the Vancouver Centre for Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry. He graduated from the VCC(Vancouver Community College) Denturist program back in 2006 and later joined Dr. Peter Balogh’s team of dental professionals in 2009. In addition to providing denture services for the patients at VCCID, he also owns and operates a denture clinic in Vancouver’s Chinatown district.

Vicson expressed an interest in dentistry from a young age. His father owned a dental lab and when he asked his son to help with chores, he saw his son was an enthusiastic learner. His dad started teaching him at a young age how removable dental prosthetics were fabricated. After working with his Dad for several years, he enrolled in a denturist program. No doubt this hands-on early training as well as his formal training at VCC Denturist program has helped him develop excellent clinical skills and to be able to provide some of the best fitting dentures possible.

In his spare time, he can be found with his children enjoying the local parks. He loves to cook and try new types of cuisine. He stays active by playing volleyball and working out. Vic brings an intense passion and years of experience to the Vancouver Centre for Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry.
