It's a great honor and a fun experience to be team dentists for the Denver Professional and Collegiate sports community.
Littleton, Colorado (PRWEB) January 18, 2012
Littleton dentist Dr. Stephen Barker and his colleagues Dr. Scott Kissinger and Dr. Brian Svoboda are celebrating Southbridge Dentistry's 19th year as team dentists for Denver professional and collegiate sports.
In 2012 Southbridge Dentistry's Littleton dentists will not only be serving the University of Denver Pioneers collegiate hockey team but also the Denver Nuggets professional basketball team.
"We are proud and honored to have the fortunate opportunity to serve both the Denver Nuggets and the University of Denver Pioneers as their team dentists in 2012. Being a huge sports fan of the Nuggets and Pioneers makes this a really fun experience!" - Dr. Brian Svoboda, Littleton dentist.
Southbridge dentistry was first introduced to the Denver sports scene in an official capacity back in 1993. As a big supporter and fan of The University of Denver hockey program, Dr. Barker would regularly attend games. In1992, according to Dr. Barker, he grew concerned over the number of injuries he was seeing on the ice. His response was to offer numerous protocols in a meeting with the DU athletic department to help the injured players and reduce similar injuries in the future. Dr. Barker's initiative led to an official partnership with The University of Denver that covers all aspects of the DU athletic program and has lasted to this day.
"The last 19 years with the DU athletic department have been such a rewarding experience for all of our Littleton dentists. Not only professionally but as fans as well. I'll never forget the opportunity we had to witness the DU Pioneers men's hockey team win consecutive NCAA championships in 2004 and 2005!" - Dr. Stephen Barker, Littleton dentist.
For Dr. Barker and his Littleton dentist staff the DU Pioneers hockey team championships have not been the only championship they've experienced. In 1994 Dr. Barker was given the opportunity to be the team dentist for the Denver Grizzlies of the IHL. One year later in 1995 the Grizzlies won the IHL Turner Cup championship.
In 1996 Denver welcomed the NHL's Colorado Avalanche hockey team to town. The Littleton dentists of Southbridge Dentistry were chosen to be their official team dentists. During their 14 seasons with the Colorado Avalanche Southbridge Dentistry celebrated two Stanley Cup championships alongside the team.
In Dr. Barker's words, "The excitement of being part of those two Stanley Cup championships is something I'll never forget. It was such an honor to use my professional skill set to support the team, while at the same time having the opportunity to let the fan inside of me participate up close in such a memorable experience!"
Southbridge Dentistry's most recent Denver professional sports experience has been with the Denver Nuggets. One year after Dr. Barker was asked to join the medical staff in 2009, Southbridge Dentistry was officially appointed as team dentists for the Denver Nuggets.
As all three Littleton dentists of Southbridge will attest, it's been such an honor and such a reward both professionally and personally to have the opportunity to serve the Denver professional and collegiate sports community. In a recent interview they all shared their excitement for the 2012 Denver Nuggets and University of Denver Pioneers Hockey season.
