Where Excellence Meets Education

Dr. Matthew Dunham grew up in northern Michigan, and received his Bachelor in Science in 1997 from Central Michigan University. After graduation, he worked as a lab technician and research assistant for the organ transplant division of the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. He attended medial school at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio where he was awarded a National Health Service Corps scholarship. He went on to complete a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Colorado in Denver. He has 15 years of experience in a broad range of practice environments including caring for the underserved at a county hospital, educating medical students as an assistant professor in a university setting, and private practice.


Dr. Dunham’s interest in Aesthetics began years ago, in large part through encouragement by his patients. Many would lament about the changes in their body following child birth or just through normal aging processes. He recognized these concerns were real, and how much it affected their overall self esteem. So began his journey into the aesthetics world. After educating himself on the subject matter, he opened Springs Body Sculpting & Aesthetics in 2016. Since then the med spa has grown significantly. He insists that all products and treatments used in his med spa are evidence based and vetted by the FDA. On this, he has never wavered.


As a physician and business owner, Dr. Dunham brings a unique set of skills and experience to VKMD Institute of Medical Aesthetics (VIMA). In his role with VIMA, Dr. Dunham wears many hats. He is involved not only in day to day operations, but is involved in development of advanced esthetics classes, organizing internships, and overseeing student relations. Dr. Dunham and the entire VIMA team are committed to elevating the student experience in the esthetic education industry.
