J. Chase Britton, D.H.Sc., M.B.A., H.I.S.
Dr. Britton is a founding father of Sound Advice along with his partners Michael Powell and Dr. Brian Vesely. Dr. Britton serves a dual role in the organization as a provider and co-CEO alongside his partner Dr. Vesely. In preparation for this opportunity Dr. Britton spent several years of his career working as a scientist and business executive for such companies as Monsanto, Durkee-French Foods, Dairy Farmers of America, and Environmental Safety and Health Associates. In 1998, Dr. Britton could not resist the opportunity to cultivate his passion for the medical sciences by accepting an invitation to purchase a longstanding hearing clinic in Branson, Missouri, thus beginning his career in hearing healthcare.
Dr. Britton’s educational preparation began with a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Health from Brigham Young University, a Masters in Business Administration from Capella University, and a Doctorate degree in Health Sciences from A.T. Still University. This combination of training in health sciences and business administration serves the organization well as they build an evidence-based system of care that puts the patient first. Dr. Britton, being hearing impaired himself, understands the difficulty hearing loss brings to individuals and families. He truly believes his work as a leader and administrator in hearing healthcare strengthens families, empowers individuals with hearing loss, and makes life so much more fun and fulfilling.
