Our Dermatology|Allergy division exists because patients deserve a diagnosis™.
It began with the successful causal research in a hand eczema of a young dental assistant by the physician Curt Hamann, founder and director of SmartPractice (Phoenix, AZ).
Focusing on products intended for the detection of contact allergies, the Department of Dermatology & Allergology at SmartPractice has been constantly expanding since 2006. New brands are added, new products are developed.
