Board certification by the American Board of Dermatology (ABD) provides objective and verifiable information for a specific physician’s education, training, experience, and proven knowledge in dermatology and dermatologic surgery. Board certified physicians must, at all times, strive to represent the highest of ethical and moral standards and agree to adhere to the ABD guidelines regarding the ethical practice of medical and cosmetic dermatology, including advertising and representations to the public, and to practice the highest standard of patient care and safety at all times.
Board Certified vs “Something Else”
Some physicians or dentists are doctors but don’t have the board certification credentialing, which means you could have a physician who went to med school for ER medicine who has now decided to perform cosmetic procedures and hangs out his shingle in a strip mall. Or another really popular option is for a physician who has receives training for family medicine and then opens up an ‘Anti-Aging’ clinic that offers many different types of cosmetic treatments. Many times the doctors who run these facilities have little training or experience of any kind in cosmetic medicine. They are truly practicing ‘on-the-job-training’ with each and every ‘patient’ they treat!
