“The DentalEar has been wonderful to use as a device to help avoid hearing loss. I appreciate the comfort and the ability to hear my patients and staff, while not being subjected to the high frequency sounds from the hand pieces and suction. For a number of years I have been interested in finding a product specific to the needs of a dentist to address hearing protection. Now I have the DentalEar and truly believe it is the best solution to prolong my hearing. Thank you!”

They are very comfortable and give me the protection while allowing me to hear the patient and staff. I would recommend them to any dental professional. They were well worth the investment in order to prevent future hearing loss.”
