 As a recipient of the “Best of the Beach Award” annually since 2012, Dr. Alina Cretu and her team at Dunes Dental Services proudly serve the Surfside Beach and surrounding areas. We take care of patients of all ages with a continuing care approach and a conservative treatment philosophy. This means that we perform the least amount of dentistry needed, and we strive to preserve your natural tooth structure. Our goal is to help patients keep their natural teeth for their lifetime.


We offer restorative, preventative, and cosmetic dental treatments with an emphasis towards high-quality long-term results and overall wellness. Dr. Alina Cretu also specializes in complex full-mouth reconstructive cases, and she loves helping patients achieve their smile goals with cosmetic treatments. With comprehensive treatment planning, our care is always personalized to you. The end result we provide is aimed at meeting your unique needs and wants.


Dr. Cretu is committed to being excellent at what she does. She regularly takes continuing dental education courses, including at the world-renowned Kois Center where she is a graduate. You can feel confident that you are receiving the best and latest treatment options. We have acquired dentistry’s newest laser which detects dental caries disease in a tooth before it is visible, even on the x-ray, allowing us to treat it before it has a chance to extensively damage the tooth.
