Hearing aid fitting and orientation

Our hearing aid fitting and orientation protocol is designed to ensure a satisfactory hearing aid fitting and transition to hearing aid use. Approximately ten to fourteen days after the hearing aids are ordered, you will return to CTENT for hearing aid fitting and orientation appointment that will last up to one hour. During the appointment, your audiologist will:

  • Program your hearing aids based on your hearing test results.
  • Fine-tune your hearing aids based on your perception of volume and clarity.
  • Provide thorough hearing aid counseling and orientation to teach you how to use and care for your new hearing aids.
  • Review hearing aid features, function, use and care.
  • Establish blue tooth connectivity and provide wireless streaming and app use instruction.
  • Review proper expectations and suggestions to assist you during the adjustment period.

During the 30-day adjustment period, it is important that you return to CTENT for appropriate follow-up appointments to assure that the hearing aids are adjusted properly.

Follow Up Care

We would like to see you for follow-up appointments at least as often as listed below:
• Two weeks after the hearing aid fitting
You will report how the hearing aids are performing, if you are experiencing any issues that need to be resolved. Hearing aid modifications and reprogramming will be completed if indicated.
• Near the end of the 30-day adjustment period
By the end of the first 30 days, adjustment to the new hearing aids should be nearly complete. During this appointment, Live Speech Mapping will be completed to verify audibility is appropriate at all frequencies requiring amplification. Hearing aid modifications and reprogramming will be completed if indicated.
• Six months after the hearing aid fitting, and every six months thereafter
Your hearing aids will be cleaned and checked for proper functioning and dehumidified. Hearing aid modifications and reprogramming will be completed if indicated.
