Display of the seal is restricted to official American Board of Dermatology documents. Diplomates are not allowed to use the ABD seal on their letterhead or websites. Diplomates are instead encouraged to request a certification mark (below) that can be displayed on their websites and letterhead.

The use of this mark informs the public that a diplomate meets the certification requirements established by the ABD, including education, training, and experience. Diplomates may use this certification mark on letterhead, signage, in the phone book, and other forms of advertising.

Diplomates with subspecialty certification may request a special certification mark as follows:

In order to request permission to use the certification mark, send a letter or email (abderm@hfhs.org) to the ABD office outlining how you intend to use the certification mark. We will then send you the certification mark personalized with your name on it at no charge.
