A doctor trained to treat the skin of young people
A Pediatric Dermatologist focuses on the skin health of young people. Becoming a pediatric dermatologist requires special training — in addition to the four-year medical school curriculum and one year of internship, three years of dermatology residency and an additional year of rigorous fellowship training are required. Most pediatric dermatologists also work as attending physicians at teaching hospitals for several years prior to establishing their own community practices.
This specialized program of study and hands-on experience prepares pediatric dermatologists to meet the needs of infants, children, and adolescents, including persons with special health care needs.

Concerned with your child’s total health care
Good skin health is an important part of physical, mental and social health. A pediatric dermatologist focuses on prevention, early detection, and treatment of skin diseases, and keep current on the latest advances in dermatology for young people.
At Burkhart Pediatric and Adolescent Dermatology, we also stay abreast of cutting-edge technologies and procedures. We utilize imaging technologies such as confocal microscopy and dermoscopy to avoid unnecessary biopsies. Due to special training in pediatric skin surgery and lasers, we have sedation privileges at local hospitals for infants, children, and adolescents who need more extensive procedures.
Offices that are warm, inviting, and filled with smiles
Doctors’ offices can be scary to a young person. Pleasant visits to a dermatology office can promote the establishment of trust and confidence in your child that will last a lifetime. Our goal, along with our staff, is to help all children feel good about visiting the dermatologist, teach them how to care for their skin and overall health, and feel good about themselves. From our special office designs to our communication style, our main concern is always what is best for your child.
