About Us

In 2003 a few practice managers seeking to create successful dermatology practices founded the Dermatology Managers Association of Georgia (DMA/GA). As we have grown, many attendees from multi-states are attracted to the annual meetings; therefore, we now identify the organization as Dermatology Managers Association (DMA).  


The purpose of DMA is to promote the development of dermatology practice managers through continuing education, progressive business practices and professional networking avenues. As DMA has grown, the same opportunities are also extended to Aesthetic practice managers and continuing learning tracks are promoted for all staff members of Dermatology and Aesthetic environments.


The Annual Conferences are for learning, networking and developing relationships with fellow practices and our many sponsors. Three concurrent educational pathways are offered during the one-and-a-half day conference.

  • for Managers, Administrators, Providers and Key Personnel
  • for Laser Practitioners, Aestheticians, Cosmetic Care Coordinators and Aesthetic Staff Members
  • for Front and Back Office staff members including Insurance and Billing Departments

The goals are established to help managers and staff alike become successful. The Annual Conference provides a forum to share knowledge and exchange information to help solve real challenges within Dermatology and Aesthetic practices. Continuing educational units and laser practitioner CEUs are available for the programs presented by business experts and leading industry speakers.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors also serve as the organization’s officers. Many volunteers make our Annual Conferences successful by helping implement all the plans necessary to accomplish DMA’s goals.

DMA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit group. The meetings are planned around the requests and needs of our members.
