Our Hearing Aid Specialists

Choosing a hearing professional is one of the most important decisions a hearing impaired person can make. Since a hearing aid fitting has many patient-related subjective components, proper hearing aid recommendation and adjustments are highly dependent on the judgment and skill of the professional selecting the instrument.

Meet Doug Dunker

Doug Dunker started fitting hearing instruments in 1999
after obtaining a degree in Hearing Instrument Sciences at
Bates College in Tacoma, Washington. This was during the
time when digital hearing instruments were making a
revolutionary impact in the industry. This focused training
allowed Doug to enter the field of dispensing hearing aids
with a solid understanding of digital processing techniques.

Continuing education is important to Doug. As the technology continues to evolve, the need to stay informed of the advances in the field is critical to the patient’s successful hearing aid fitting. Doug consistently achieves more continuing education training than the minimum requirements to maintain his license. Doug was elected by his industry peers as President of the Hearing Healthcare Providers of Utah (HHPU). He is also a member if the International Hearing Society, and has played an instrumental role in helping get advanced training courses into the State of Utah.

Our Hearing Aid Specialists

Precision Hearing uses some of the most advanced diagnostic testing equipment in the industry. By using digital testing equipment, we are able to transfer your hearing loss seamlessly into a fitting program to obtain prescribed settings for a hearing instrument to be set for your needs. After the hearing instruments are set, our Live Speech Mapping system will verify the hearing aid settings in relation to your hearing loss so you are able to see what you are hearing and what you are missing.

After the fitting, the user is counseled on how to properly use and care for the instruments and a follow-up program is implemented so that the user is able to get the best possible performance from the instruments.

Our goal is to provide you the best possible hearing care based upon your individual needs. We provide an array of services related to evaluation, rehabilitation, and prevention of hearing impairment. These
services include comprehensive hearing exams, specialized diagnostic testing, and advanced fitting of hearing instruments and verification techniques.
