Dr. Iregui’s road to dentistry
Dr. Iregui joined SoundBridge Center for Dental Arts in the fall of 2013. With her children in school full time, she had debated what her next step in life would be. A dentist by profession, she was brought into the practice to help Dawn with administrative responsibilities. As luck would have it, sleep apnea and the role of dentistry in its treatment was also coming to the forefront in the dental profession. In the spring of 2013, Dr. Bloomquist and Dr. Iregui joined together to open SoundBridge Dental Sleep Therapy.
Dr. Iregui did her undergraduate work at Washington University in St. Louis and graduated in 1988 with a Bachelors in Biology and a minor in dance. She then attended the University of Missouri – Kansas School of Dentistry where she received her DDS in 1992.
She completed her training at Denver General Hospital as a General Practice Resident in 1993. Dr. Iregui has practiced restorative dentistry full time in Denver, Colorado, in Lake of the Ozarks and St. Louis, Missouri. She also taught operative dentistry part time at Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine.
In 1998, Chiarina began working full-time at the dental school as Director of the Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency as well as maintained her private practice one day a week.
Dr. Iregui has dedicated her practice of dentistry exclusively to treating patients who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. Starting in November of 2014, Dr. Iregui committed herself to work towards obtaining the title of Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine. Diplomate Status is the gold standard of dental sleep medicine, demonstrating that a dentist has the technical skills, in-depth knowledge, and professional judgment to provide optimal oral appliance therapy treatment.
In June of 2017, Dr. Iregui earned her Diplomate status of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine. She is one of only two Diplomates in Pierce, Kitsap, and Thurston Counties. In addition, she obtained over 50 hours of dental sleep medicine continuing education each year to keep giving her patients the optimal care they deserve.
