Choosing the right hearing care provider is an essential piece to the life-transforming hearing care process. If you're looking for a new Audiologist for yourself or a loved one, we've put together a list of 7 reasons why you should consider our practice.
Our Providers are all Doctors of Audiology
There are two different types of providers that can provide general hearing care — Audiologists and Dispensers (also known as Dealers or Hearing Instrument Specialists). While both can dispense hearing aids, there are a number of differences between the two.
Hearing aid dispensers do not need a degree in Audiology. In fact, in some states, they don't need any college degree at all. They are allowed to provide hearing screenings, perform hearing tests and can fit hearing aids.
Audiologists, on the other hand, have an advanced degree in Audiology and are trained in a number of ear-related conditions. The most common degree for Audiologists is an "Au.D" degree, comprising of three years of didactic and clinical instruction and a one-year externship, similar to a medical residency. All of the providers at Advanced Hearing & Balance specialists are Doctors of Audiology and have earned the "Au.D" behind their name.
Where our health is concerned, the experience of the healthcare professional matters. Advanced Hearing & Balance Specialists has been providing audiology services for more than 40 years. Our Practice also features the very 1st Doctor of Audiology in all of Southern Utah, Lance A. Greer, AuD.

We offer a wide selection of hearing aids
Choosing the right one is no easy task. Today’s hearing aids are smaller and more feature-packed than their predecessors, offering an array of options. Many hearing aid clinics only offer one brand of hearing aid for their patients. At Advanced Hearing & Balance Specialists, we offer the latest from the best manufacturers in the world, such as Oticon, Resound and Phonak.

Dr. Smith is really kind and knowledgeable. She assessed one of my young kids. She got to know him, was really loving and gentle with him, and helped him complete his testing in a fun way. She was able to help him stay sitting during 30-40 minutes of testing, which is pretty tough for that age. — Bryan G.
