Ted Blanford, ACA/HIS


Ted studied at the George Washington University School of Medicine Laboratory Science, and he has more than 23 years of experience as a hearing health professional. He also served his country for 22 years, including three tours in Iraq.

“I’ve been proud to serve my country, and I founded Summit so that I can serve my community by providing solutions to hearing loss,” Ted says. “My goal is to help as many people as possible enjoy the freedom of communicating with those they love.”

Ted has a personal perspective on hearing loss—his own hearing loss was diagnosed when he was 30 years old.

“I understand the hesitation that people experience when they notice a change in their hearing,” Ted says. “I don’t want the hearing aid experience to be uncomfortable or something that is put off until it gets ‘too bad.’ If someone notices that you’re having trouble understanding speech, it’s ‘bad enough’ to do something. On average, people wait seven to 10 years before they do anything about a noticeable hearing loss. The truth is, hearing aids may be the solution.

“I love what we do, and that’s helping people reconnect with those they love by offering superior service and the finest American-made hearing aids available,” Ted adds. “I truly understand the importance of communication and how hearing loss can affect one’s family and loved ones.”

Ted and his wife, Laura, have two daughters, Chelsea, 30, and Isla, 11.
