Since 1985, Dr. Brenda Dintiman has offered patients a caring environment and the latest in research-based, innovative medicine – widely recognized for excellence, particularly since she began specializing in dermatology in 1991.
“Dermatology requires listening to and understanding your patients, as well as being committed to clinical medicine and cosmetic treatment,” Dr. Dintiman notes. “I’ve always believed some things don’t go out of style: being on the cutting edge of knowledge and skill, advocating for medical and cosmetic advancements and – most important – giving patients of all ages a truly care-based experience.”
Family members who worked in the medical field inspired Dr. Dintiman early. In her teens, she spent hours in her aunt’s dental practice and with her uncle, a radiologist. She grew to love medicine via reading x-rays and honing her bedside manner. After graduating from the University of Richmond (VA), she was accepted into the Medical College of Virginia.
Following graduation, Dr. Dintiman completed her internship training at the University of Hawaii and her dermatology residency at the University of New Mexico. Then, as a new physician in the Northern Virginia area, she founded the Fair Oaks Skin Care Center.

Outside of her daily practice, Dr. Dintiman has volunteered as a physician and as a board member for Project Access of Northern Virginia (PANV), which provides pro-bono specialty care for underprivileged patients. She also has been president of the Medical Society of Northern Virginia (MSNVA) and remains a dedicated member, working to better the medical community for doctors and patients, as well as improve access for patients in underserved areas. In 2015, Dr. Dintiman started a lectureship at the University of New Mexico in honor of Dr. Walter H. C. Burgdorf to enhance the education of dermatology residents and the community.
Dr. Dintiman understands that limited access to care is a significant issue that must be overcome. She participated in telemedicine for the American Association of Dermatology (AAD) and, in 2010, received the Presidential Award for Volunteerism in Telemedicine. In 2018, Dr. Dintiman became a driving force in establishing DermUtopia, where she provides patient-centered care through both in-person and telemedicine visits.
