About Dermatology Managers Association

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 out-of-state are attracted to the annual meetings; therefore, we now identify the organization as Dermatology Managers Association (DMA).


The purpose of DMA remains to promote the development of dermatology practice managers through continuing education, progressive business practices and professional networking avenues. DMA has grown over the past few years and now includes the same opportunities for all staff members of Dermatology and Aesthetic practices.


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, Providers and Cosmetic Care Coordinators
  • for Administrative and Clinical 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 non-profit group. The meetings are planned around the requests and needs of our members and attendees.
