Your skin is just like you: one-of-a-kind and ever evolving. That’s why it deserves the synthesized approach to medical, cosmetic and aesthetic dermatology practiced at our offices. We created Village Dermatology as a comprehensive source for everything that healthy skin requires throughout a lifetime – a place where advanced medicine, beauty and innovation meet.


In 2008, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jenny Oakes Sobera opened Village Dermatology in her hometown of Mountain Brook, Alabama with a single purpose: providing patients and families with the highest quality skin care available. She assembled a group of board-certified dermatologists, medical and aesthetic staff who share this vision. Together, they’ve earned a reputation for excellent care and impressive results. Along with a state-of-the-art medical facility, Village Dermatology includes the Skin for Life Boutique and the Aesthetic & Laser Center. All procedures provided by our doctors are performed in-office for a more convenient, comfortable and cost-effective patient experience.
