The Vancouver Canucks is a professional hockey team that plays in the National Hockey League in Canada. They are a common fixture in British Columbia sports with a passionate fan base who continue to support them since they entered the league in 1970.
Throughout the years, hockey has evolved for the better and along with its evolution came upgrades in the professional teams who participate in it. The Canucks are one such team that built a strong organization for their fans and for their players.
They have their management team, coaching staff, training staff, athletic performance team, team of scouts, and a medical team. All of these divisions have functions to ensure that the team performs at high level every time they step on the ice.
However, let us focus on the medical staff specifically the preferred orthodontist on the team. Dr. Keith Lim is the team dentist and is one of a 5-man team composed of two physicians, chiropractor, and optometrist.
We all know that hockey is a physical sport. Collisions between players and other forms of physical contact usually happen during the heat of a contest. This makes the players vulnerable to getting a tooth dislodged or loose, a broken tooth, or any other dental accident.
The job of their team dentist is to provide players with professional service to tend to the dental troubles they get themselves into after the game. Dr. Lim is a well-trained and experienced orthodontist treats his patients, who are professional hockey players, using the latest methods and practices in orthodontics to ensure that they address their needs.
Aside from an experienced specialist, the Vancouver Canucks also has the facilities where their team dentist can work with their players with top-of-the-line equipment to ensure the best results. It continues to be a big medical investment that has helped the Canucks players to play at their best.
