Here at Beltone, we know how important good hearing is to the health and happiness of our patients. Hearing clearly keeps us connected with friends and loved ones, aware of our surroundings, and independent. Also, by keeping the brain properly stimulated, good hearing may lower our risk for Alzheimer's disease, depression and balance issues.

Our mission doesn't stop with finding just the right hearing instrument for each patient we serve. It continues with making sure you're totally comfortable with your hearing instruments in every way. Visit Beltone soon! And join the ranks of the “happily hearing”.

Dave Duggan

Senior Master Hearing Care Practitioner

Upon his marriage and beginning of his family in 2001, Dave Duggan began to search for a rewarding career helping people. After years of working for Beltone Hearing Centers in Belleville, Trenton and Allen Park Michigan, Dave and longtime Beltone owner Dan Fletcher launched Sound Hearing III in Western Michigan in August of 2010. At that time, they started with offices in Portage and Battle Creek MI. They have since expanded to outlying areas with offices/satellites in St. Joseph, Allegan, Coldwater, Kalamazoo, and Sturgis Michigan as well.

Dave is known professionally for his attention to detail, his knowledge, his caring approach with patients and most importantly his knack for solving even the most difficult of hearing issues. His clients have often been searching for years for a hearing solution and finally find the results they have been looking for with Dave.

Dave has worked with thousands of patients from blue collar to Doctors to owners of multi-national companies and has tailored hearing systems for even their most demanding needs successfully. He is passionate about helping people and working in the hearing industry affords him a career where he can support his family, do something he loves and is appreciated by every person he sees on a daily bases. Dave enjoys spending time with his patients, learning about what they are passionate, about what they enjoy and helping them achieve their goals. His patients say he is quick to smile, has a ready laugh and genuinely loves the people he works with.

When Dave isn't working at one of his offices, you can most likely find him spending time with his wife and 3 children, besides playing hockey himself, Dave coaches 2 of his son's hockey teams and is always a spectator at his daughter, Allison's, soccer games. Dave enjoys golfing, though he rarely gets out, movies, reading, wake boarding, exercising and all hands on activities including car repair and home improvement. Dave's nickname amongst his family is 'get-er-done Duggan' since he always has a task on the go and doesn't procrastinate.

Dave is a Michigan football fanatic and on game day Saturday's you can find him in Ann Arbor bright and early for a tailgate and a Michigan football game.

Dave Duggan grew up in a small Village of 700 people in South Eastern Ontario called Bloomfield. While attending high school, his parents were relocated to New Jersey by their employer. Dave decided to stay in his hometown to complete high school, then began his college schooling at Brock University in St. Catherine’s, Ontario. A summer job traveling the United States, while in University, landed Dave a job offer in Michigan upon completion of his schooling and he has made Michigan his home since 1997.

Dave is an annual award winning hearing specialist with Beltone. He has won multiple awards with a few including Advanced Practitioner, Senior Practitioner, Senior Master Practitioner, Power ranking award winner, and bi-neural award winner to name a few.

Dave would like to be remembered as a loving husband and father, great friend, and someone who touched everyone he met in a positive way.
