Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting

Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting

Once you have selected your hearing aids after an evaluation, our hearing care professional, Dennis Tembreull, will program them, based on a prescription, to meet your hearing needs. He will explain how to use the devices, how to put them in the ear and how to remove them, how to change or charge batteries and how to care for and clean the devices.

Dennis has the experience, care and patience to make a hearing solution work for anyone. Dennis got his start working inside a hearing aid manufacturing plant in 1999. There, Dennis learned all the skills needed to understand and work on hearing aids of all types. Dennis has also fit over 2000 people with hearing aids since receiving his Washington state dispensing license in 2001.

Understanding your hearing aids

When you put the hearing aids in for the first time, you may have different emotions about the sounds you hear. This is normal and to be expected. The goal of the hearing aid is to make everyday sounds audible and comfortable, but the sound you hear should be clear and pleasant. Small changes can be made to the hearing aids at your first fitting if there are things that you feel should be adjusted right away. We will do additional testing to make sure that the hearing aids are giving you enough sound where you need it. Additionally, remember to ask any questions or discuss any concerns you may have.

Fitting your hearing aids

FullScope Hearing employs Real Ear Measurement (REM) to verify and validate the sound coming in is exactly what the client needs. You also will be given a short survey or list of questions to answer. Be honest about what you hear so that our hearing care professional can work with you to create the best listening experience with your new hearing aids. Your hearing aid fitting is only a starting place; other changes to customize the hearing to your liking may need to take place over a few appointments.

Adjusting to hearing aids

Attitude is one important key to success with hearing aids. Hearing aid studies have shown that people who have a positive attitude do better with hearing aids. If you, as well as your spouse or family, approach your hearing aid fitting with a positive outlook you will have a much better listening experience more quickly. Keep in mind that it may take some time to get used to the sounds you were missing, and by working closely with our hearing care professional, you will get the most out of your new hearing aids.
