Community Outreach

Charitable Contributions

At Advanced Hearing Center, we’re dedicated to donating our time to assist area children whose families lack the funds to purchase hearing aids and whose health insurance does not provide coverage for audiological services.

We work closely with the Dallas, Texas school districts to collect donations for hearing aids and provide our audiological services free of charge. This gives these children a chance to develop normal communication skills, and prevents any delays in their education.

 

Hearing Conservation Program

Our goal is to prevent hearing loss where possible, provide comprehensive testing when there are concerns and make appropriate recommendations when help is needed.

We are committed to the preservation and protection of the priceless gift of hearing. Our Hearing Conservation Program provides educational awareness of occupational and recreational sound hazards to ensure a lifetime of safe hearing.

Noise-induced hearing loss is permanent damage to the inner ear. It is preventable by using ear protection whenever you are exposed to loud noise, limiting the time you are exposed to the noise and reduction noise to a safe level.

Safe Hearing Levels

Prolonged noise can damage your hearing. The louder the sound, the shorter the safe exposure time. The following information should only be used as a guide to determine hazardous noise.

Normal conversation occurs on average at 60 dB. Noise exposure equal to or exceeding an 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA) sound level of 85 dB is potentially damaging. Graduatl hearing loss may occur after prolonged exposure to 90 dB or above. Exposure to 100 dB for more than 15 minutes or 110 dB for more than a minute, can cause permanent hearing loss. Any exposure in excess of 115 dB may pose a serious health risk.

Symptoms of Hearing Loss

• Ringing, buzzing, chirping or whistling in the ears (tinnitus)
• Difficulty hearing after a few hours of exposure
• A gradual loss of clarity in speech perception
• Ear pain
• Hypersensitivity to loud sounds

Get a baseline hearing test and have your hearing tested annually by
an audiologist to identify and track hearing loss.

Protection from Loud Noise

Recreational and occupational noises at excessive levels can cause permanent hearing loss. Wear hearing protection when you will be exposed to loud noises to prevent hearing loss.

Where do you go for follow-up care once you've failed an industrial hearing test?

It’s a great when an employer provides their work force with a baseline-hearing test. This can be so important, not only for identifying anyone who might already be suffering from a hearing loss and side-effects of untreated hearing loss, but to also have this in your medical file in case you ever experience any type of injury, illness or accident that might effect your hearing. This gives doctors the ability to gauge how much of an impact the injury, illness or accident has had on your hearing and can also provide the patient with financial help from their insurance company to obtain the appropriate treatment.

If you were told you either failed the hearing test or were diagnosed with a hearing loss, bring your audiogram (hearing test results) and report to us and we can develop a customized treatment plan to meet your specific lifestyle demands and hearing needs.

Due to the growing causes of hearing loss and exposure to loud sounds, we recommend ALL people get a baseline test and anyone who has a hearing loss should receive a hearing test once per year to monitor any changes in hearing.
