We're the Official Dentist of the St. Louis Ambush
The St. Louis Ambush made it official. Optima Dental Group in Union is the team’s official dentist. This is quite an honor and a tremendous opportunity to partner with a professional sports teams from St. Louis.
The St. Louis Ambush, a professional indoor soccer team, are headquartered in St. Charles and play their home games in Family Arena. The Ambush are a member of the Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) and is part of the new era in indoor soccer. “This sport is growing,” said Tony Glavin, a St. Louis soccer legend who played for and coached the original St. Louis Steamers, and now is the head coach and co-owner of the Ambush. “We’re teaming up with area companies that support indoor soccer and realize it’s growth potential.” In case you're wondering how Optima Dental Group was selected for this privilege, Coach Glaven and I have known each other for many years and worked together to bring professional soccer to St. Louis.
The MASL is made up of 22 indoor soccer teams, so people who love to watch the game don’t have to give it up over the winter. A recent poll shows nearly 7 million Americans call themselves soccer fans. And 30% of American households have a family member who currently plays or did play soccer. Right now, there are more than 100,000 youth soccer players in St. Louis. Many of their parents played the game growing up and now are fans in the stands. Indoor soccer fans appreciate the climate control and the fast-paced action you experience at indoor stadiums as opposed to the slower-paced play and the bugs and rain you can get outdoors.
Thanks to Coach Glavin and owners Will and Shelly Clark and Dr. Elizabeth Perez. We are honored. We wish the Ambush the best of luck this season!!
