Leslie A. Smith, HAS, BC-HIS
Leslie A. Smith is a licensed Hearing Aid Specialist and is Board Certified in Hearing Instrument
Sciences. Leslie is a member of the Florida Society of Hearing Healthcare Professionals and the
International Hearing Society.
She began working in the Panama City office in 2008 and has 14 years hands on experience with treating hearing loss with hearing aids. Leslie also holds clinic hours at the Niceville (Blue Water Bay) location.
Leslie was raised in Panama City, FL and graduated from Mosley High School. She attended Gulf Coast State College and Florida State University.
Leslie has always had a passion for helping others. When she chose this as her career path, she was no stranger to the industry. She was introduced to it by her parents Jim and Laura Dame who are true hearing healthcare advocates. They have been at it for 40 years and counting!
The hearing industry is special to her because she loves having an active role in helping people to reconnect with friends and family. It is gratifying to Leslie when patients report back to her that they can live a more socially active lifestyle after being fit with hearing aids. She finds that her patients can communicate more effortlessly and as a result have a better quality of life.
Outside of her practice, Leslie treasures her time with family. She is married with two beautiful daughters. She enjoys nice long runs with her dogs then slowing down to relax and enjoy a good book. Like any true Floridian, she enjoys their family trips to Walt Disney World!
The Hearing Aid Store That Keeps From Missing the Best Things in Life
Our Gulf Coast Hearing Center Strive to Prevent Further Loss
Our goal is to keep you from suffering additional health issues brought on by hearing loss. When untreated, hearing loss affects other aspects of your physical health and well-being.
Our Niceville Hearing Aids Get You Back to Living at Your Best
Without support for your hearing loss, your brain will try to compensate, and in turn, it takes power away from other functions you need for your body to function properly.
When working harder, your social and emotional processes, along with your short-term memory, start to slow down.
The sooner you give attention to hearing loss, the better it works to get your body’s day-to-day functions back in balance.
