Kerry A. Lavigne, of Camden Dermatology & Mohs Surgery, has announced the addition of Dr. Kimberly Huerth to the physician staff.

Huerth recently completed her dermatology residency at Howard University in Washington, D.C., serving as chief resident.

As a procedural dermatologist, Dr. Huerth performs excisions of both benign or malignant lesions. Additionally, she will augment CDMS’ offerings of cosmetic procedures including neuromodulators such as Botox, dermal fillers, chemical peels, laser treatments and microneedling with platelet rich plasma.

Huerth completed a post-baccalaureate pre-medical program at Harvard University and attended medical school at SUNY Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. During residency, she cared for a diverse array of patients at Howard University Hospital, Washington D.C. Veterans Affairs Medical Center as well as Children’s National Medical Center. As a member of several professional societies including the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Society for Mohs Surgery, and the Women’s Dermatologic Society, Huerth has presented her research at numerous regional and national conferences. She has also published in several peer-reviewed dermatology journals.

In the fall of 2021 Huerth will be taking a one-year hiatus in order to complete a American Society of Dermatologic Surgery accredited cosmetic dermatology fellowship. She plans to return the following year to CDMS with advanced training and expertise in a number of cosmetic procedures. In order to ensure continuity of care during the time she is away, Camden Dermatology & Mohs Surgery has hired an additional dermatology physician assistant, Jessica Hennen, who will be joining the staff in October.

“As a native New Englander, it is a privilege to be able to practice in a part of Maine where the tremendous demand for dermatologic care surpasses the availability of highly-trained, board certified dermatologists,” said Dr. Huerth. “I hope that my joining CDMS enables more rapid access to both essential and elective skin care, which patients might have formerly waited months to receive.”

Huerth will also be performing Mohs surgery as a portion of her clinical work.
