The ear is composed of four general areas that pick up sound waves and translate them into sounds in our brain. Our ability – or lack thereof – to hear has an impact on all aspects of our lives.
Your hearing is a critical part of your overall health. Just as you make time for regular eye exams, blood pressure and dental check-ups, it is important to schedule an annual hearing screening.

Protect your hearing
Protect your hearing and wear earplugs whenever your surroundings are so loud that you must raise your voice to be heard.
