Sapna Hayes, DDS


Sapna HayesDr. Hayes moved to the Asheville area from Ohio where she once served as a contract dentist in the Air Force Dental Corps. She has more than 20 years of dental experience.  She graduated from Louisiana State University (LSU) in Baton Rouge with a BS in Zoology, and attended LSU School of Dentistry, receiving her degree in 1997.

After graduation, Dr. Hayes joined the Air Force and was stationed in the United Kingdom, Texas, Florida, and California. Some of her accomplishments include serving as chief of general dentistry, dental public health officer, and as a member of the forensic dental team. She earned several meritorious service and commendation medals during her 10 year tenure with the Air Force.

After her service in the Air Force, she co-founded a dental clinic serving an underprivileged population in rural California.

Deciding to join Zöe Dental was an easy decision for Dr. Hayes. She says that our practice philosophy, advanced technology, caring staff, and happy patients are key reasons for joining our team and that it has been a natural fit.

Dr. Hayes is married to Samuel Hayes, an oral surgeon who also served in the Air Force. They have one son, Jaidin, who was born in 2014.

When she’s not helping patients, Sapna is a busy mother raising Jaidin.  When she gets the chance she likes to experience the outdoors as much as possible by hiking, gardening, and playing tennis. She also enjoys cooking—and makes a fabulous chicken curry!
