Introduction to Hearing Health

Annually, you visit your primary care physician for a general check up on your overall health. You may also visit a dentist every 6 months for oral health and an optometrist for your eyes. So, who is taking care of your ears and hearing health?

World Health Organization

According to the World Health Organization, over 1.5 billion people globally live with hearing loss and this number is expected to rise to over 2.5 billion by 2050.

Consult a licensed hearing professional near you to check up on your hearing health.

The Difference a Hearing Healthcare Provider Can Make

Although members of the public now have access to over the counter (OTC) hearing aids, they should still seek out the opinions and recommendations of a licensed and trained hearing healthcare professional. Not only do consumers have access to high-quality prescription hearing devices from these licensed practitioners, but they also receive continued care through the life of their hearing devices.
