About

Happy Skin Dermatology

My name is Samantha Casselman, DNP, CPNP-PC and I am a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner with over 6 years of experience as a Pediatric Dermatology NP. I received my doctorate degree from ASU (so you can technically call me Dr. Sam) and trained at Phoenix Children’s Hospital with the best specialists in AZ.

I am proud to be the founder of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners Dermatology Special Interest Group where I get to share my knowledge with PNP’s throughout the country.

I have always desired a flexible and holistic care model for my patients and after 6 years of practicing in a standard clinic setting, it was clear an independent practice was essential to provide patients with the comprehensive care they deserve.

During your appointment, you and your child will receive one-of-a-kind, individualized experience founded on the principals of a holistic health care model. I am honored to care for your child and family and look forward to partnering with you.
