Board Certified By The American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine
After graduating from the University of Alabama, Dr. Irwin got his dental degree from the University of Alabama Birmingham in 1968 where he received the Scholastic Achievement Award and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society.
From there the U.S. Army sent him to Belgium where he practiced general dentistry for 3 years.
Following his active duty in the service he completed a residency program in 1973 earning a specialty certificate in Orthodontics from the University of Missouri at Kansas City, recognized as one of the top orthodontic programs in the country.
In 1992 Dr. Irwin took his first course on treating patients who snore and have sleep apnea and has been successfully treating these patients ever since. He gets as much gratification from hearing how he has increased the health and quality of life from his sleep apnea patients as he does from seeing a beautiful finished smile on one of his orthodontic patients.
