David Carr grew up in Upstate New York and moved to Long Island in 1985. Dave discovered his passion for helping the hearing impaired in the 90’s when he began working with his parents in the hearing healthcare industry. He officially earned his license in 1996 and became a third generation certified Hearing Instrument Specialist. He is now the proud owner of McGuire’s Hearing Centers which is the business his parents began in 1970. Dave is committed to providing ethical and top quality patient care and to ensure the success of both patients and professionals, he stays proactive with industry changes. His strong beliefs in working with professional organizations lead him to serve twice as President of the Hearing Healthcare Alliance of New York, of which he is still currently presiding. He is also a member of the International Hearing Society Health Insurance Task Force, which helps enables him to further advocate for patients and professionals in the ever changing insurance industry. Dave has a strong sense of community which inspires him to serve as the current President of the Foundation For Sight & Sound. Through that Foundation, he co-created the Help America Hear program that provides hearing instruments to those less fortunate. No matter a person’s background or income level, Dave believes everyone has the right to hear better and it’s his goal to ensure everyone has that opportunity! And when Dave isn’t volunteering for hearing aid missions around the world and advocating for the hearing impaired in the USA, you can bet he is traveling to adventurous places with his family or playing golf near sand and sun!
