WELCOME TO SLENT Hearing & Balance Center

Yes, we’re experienced. Yes, we know everything there is to know about hearing aids, but most importantly, we’re Doctors of Audiology.

But what makes us truly special is the way that we make you feel. From the moment that you first speak to one of our Doctors of Audiology, you’ll feel at home, like you’re one of the family at our hearing and balance center.

Comprehensive Hearing Tests

Our hearing tests and evaluations are designed to put you at ease so you know exactly where your hearing sits on the quality spectrum. Your test will last 45 minutes. There’ll be a physical examination (only a slight tickle, we promise!) followed by pure tone testing and speech testing. You’ll get the results almost immediately and from there you’ll be advised on what course of treatment is needed (if any) to improve your hearing health.


Personalized Hearing Aids Uniquely For You

You will never get a sales pitch from us. If you need hearing aids, it is our duty to advise you on the exact type you need and what’s going to fit with your lifestyle. As hearing aids are an investment, it’s so important that you get professional and impartial guidance, which, in many cases, depending on the severity of your hearing loss, can mean that the most basic and cheapest hearing aids might just do the trick! Of course, as technology advances, so too do the features and add-ons, but here at SLENT hearing and balance center, we’ll talk you through those if you want us to.


Balance Disorder &

Did it come as a surprise to you to learn your balance is directly linked to your ears? That nausea or dizziness is often a direct result of a larger hearing issue and hearing loss? Don’t worry, though – treating this is our speciality. This test is very similar to the hearing test, with an emphasis on a physical examination of your inner ear carried out by one of our highly trained Doctors of Audiology.
