Your Hearing Care & Balance Experts in Slidell, LA

Slidell, LA, located on the northeast shore of Lake Pontchartrain, was little more than a lumber mill until the construction of the New Orleans and Northeastern Railroad (N.O.N.E.), which connected New Orleans to Meridian, Mississippi in the early 1880s. After the construction of Interstate 10, Interstate 59, and Interstate 12, Slidell became a major crossroads for those traversing the Gulf States, but the establishment of the NASA computer center in the 1960s tripled the city’s growth.

Slidell remains a regional transportation hub and a major suburb of New Orleans that is home for the National Weather Service forecast office for the New Orleans and Baton Rouge areas and the headquarters of Vesco Tennis Courts, which specializes in the construction of hard surfaces for outdoor sports facilities, as well as the global headquarters for automotive manufacturer and military contractor Textron Marine & Land Systems.

How We Can Help You

Comprehensive Hearing Test

A Hearing Assessment: The First Step on Your Better Hearing Journey

Difficulty with recall and a decreased capacity to concentrate on daily tasks are among the early indicators of cognitive decline. The use of hearing aids is an effective means of restoring memory and preventing cognitive decline.

Early detection is not only your best insurance for preventing additional hearing damage, but it’s also your ticket to better hearing and a better quality of life. A hearing test at the SLENT Hearing and Balance Center location nearest you is quick, easy, non-invasive, and we provide you with the results during the same visit.

If you’re missing parts of conversations, loved ones complain that the volume of the television is too loud, or you just don’t feel like you’re hearing as clearly as you once did, then contact our team of hearing care experts for a comprehensive hearing assessment.


Advanced Hearing Technology

Access to Advanced Hearing Aid Technology

Most people are still stuck in the past when it comes to hearing aids, assuming that they are still like those bulky, frustrating gadgets your parents or grandparents wore. Instead of those outdated devices, you can use today’s advanced technology hearing aids from the SLENT Hearing and Balance Center closest to you.

Advanced hearing aid technology packs a lot more power in a smaller, lightweight device with amazing connectivity options and the highest level of sound quality ever produced. However, there is never a “one size fits all” for hearing aids. That’s why our team of hearing and audiology experts takes the time to understand your unique needs, lifestyle, and budget to provide the perfect hearing aids for you.

Balance Disorder & Tests

Testing and Treatment of Balance Disorders

Did you know that your balance is directly linked to your ears? Nausea, dizziness, or vertigo could be the result of damage to your inner ears or the direct result of a larger hearing issue or hearing loss.

In fact, statistics show that more than 50% of the accidental deaths and over 300,000 hip fractures among the elderly are associated with balance-related falls.

Our hearing and audiology experts understand the role your ears play in helping you stay steady on your feet, which is why balance disorder testing and treatment are a natural extension of what we do at our SLENT Hearing and Balance Center clinics.
