“When the opportunity to partner with Dr Webb became available, I knew that it was too good to pass up,” said Kent, who is part of an 80-year family legacy of hearing care that started with L.B. Kent in 1938.  “Working together, we look forward to combining resources and providing Beltone products and first-class hearing care to Nebraska and Southwest Iowa.”

“Both teams are looking forward to the partnership and working together to address the hearing care concerns of current patients and new ones just starting their hearing health journey,” said Webb, who also is part of a family tradition of hearing care, following his father Kent Webb, who founded ASI Audiology in 1978.
