Avalanche team dentist talks about what it’s like treating hockey players

DENVER — There’s never a dull moment in being the team dentist for the Colorado Avalanche — or any other NHL team.

Denver7 spoke to Dr. Dan Selner, the Avs’ team dentist for nine years, on his time treating hockey players.

He says although they have many regular dental problems, it can get complicated.

“Sometimes during the game you see someone being slapped right in the face and there’s blood all over the place,” said Dr. Selner on Denver7 in his office at the Denver Tech Center. “And so we go to the training room, meet them and sort it out.”
