The Centers for Advanced ENT Care

We are proud to announce that in December 2017, Chesapeake Otolaryngology Associates was one of the founding physician offices for The Centers for Advanced ENT Care [CAdENT], (, the Mid-Atlantic’s premier provider of comprehensive ear, nose and throat services.

CAdENT offers patients the highest standard of professional medical care with state-of-the-art equipment at over 30 convenient and readily-accessible practice locations. With more than 60 physicians, our providers deliver expert treatment in all areas of ear, nose and throat care.

While our office locations and providers will stay the same, this will allow our patients a larger resource for any Ear, Nose and Throat related problems!
