Best, most skilled dental practice I have ever used. Dr. Alina and her staff are professional, competent, friendly and helpful with routine cleanings, dental procedures, submission of claims and billings. I'm always greeted promptly and seen in a reasonable time. I feel totally comfortable as a patient there. I use the practice even though they're out-of-network for my insurer, because it's worth the extra cost.
I love the care, the staff and Dr. Alena. I’ve been a patient for several years and have referred others, who have also been very satisfied. They are very thorough and make sure you get any necessary treatments and don’t try to push services that you don’t need.
If you are looking for the best dental care in Myrtle Beach, look no more! Dr. Alina is a very knowledgeable and competent professional with excellent expertise in dentistry, and at the same time, very caring with her patients. For the past 7 years, my family and I were taken care in an exceptional way by Dr. Alina and her staff for our dental needs, from cleaning, to fillings, to implants and everything in between. Everybody at this practice is competent, welcoming and accommodating, making it from going to the dentist an enjoyable experience. I used to be very anxious about going to the dentist, but not anymore, for I know I’m being taken care by the best! I definitely recommend Dr. Alina and the Dunes Dental Services family!
I recently moved to South Carolina from New Jersey, and one of the most important things on my mind was getting new doctors and dentists for myself and my family. After asking around for some recommendations, my friends told me about Dr. Alina and Dunes Dental Services. I decided to try out Dunes Dental, and my family and I got such a warm reception upon first walking into their office. Dr. Alina keeps her patients well-informed and has proven herself as one of the best of the best when it comes to dental services. I’ve never been happier with my smile, and I can truly feel comfortable going in for check ups knowing that it’s Dr. Alina and the staff of Dunes Dental Services that are caring for me.
For many of us hindsight is 20/20 and that is how I felt about my teeth and smile when I met Dr Alina. From years of not wearing my night guards, nail biting, and inconsistent oral hygiene I was left with unattractive, not very functional, ground down teeth, very tight jaw muscles, headaches, and so on. I remember that question in her office when I first checked in… “Are you happy with your smile?” I was not. I had not been for almost 15 years. I kept finding quick fixes to push off what I knew to be serious dental work and a commitment and transition I wasn’t ready for. I saw dentists up north and began my “patch up” process on my front teeth and still continued this madness years later out west, where my dentist told me my jaw and bite needed a serious adjustment. My teeth were so worn down, I called them my baby teeth. I looked at pics of when I was a kid and could not believe the visible consequences of grinding. Here in SC, still on my “patching journey” with composites, broken teeth and training myself to smile in a way that kept my teeth hidden, I met and talked with Dr. Alina whom I felt really understood my discomfort and concerns. It didn’t take long for me to decide THIS was the person, the team, I would trust to go on this transformational dental journey with. And I did! She listens, she is not rushed, she is there for you, always! Always! Additionally, Courtney, her Dental Assistant is there for you, listening, she is so involved, she doesn’t skip a beat. Jennifer and Cathy, are kind and accommodating, so helpful and have a can-do mentality and they do! Brittany is amazingly thorough and I don’t dread cleanings. This all meant a lot to me in this fast digital world to feel heard and also to be made to feel valued by everyone in this practice, which very much feels like a family in itself. My review is that I LOVE them so much! I recommend them to everyone. There is something special going on there, at that office. I’m so happy with all of my experiences at Dunes Dental. They really care and if I could put it all in one sentence I would say they go above and beyond and you will recognize it instantly. Thanks Team! Now I must learn how to show off my smile😍
Many many thanks to Dr Alina and her top notch team! No surprise that dental work often gives us anxiety, but the experience at Dunes Dental Services is about as stress free as it can be. Dr Alina is highly skilled, attentive, really cared about ME throughout the entire experience, and is truly a gentle spirit that eases the nerves. Big shoutout to dental assistant, Courtney, who talks me through the process and keeps me at ease while Dr Alina minds the details and artistry of her craft. Last, but in no way least, is Cathy and Jennifer who manage the office and serve as amazing patient advocates. I am always greeted with not just a smile, but they know and remember who I am. I know that everything from calling in about an upcoming appt to providing financial guidance/planning will be met with genuine care that really makes this office feel like a family; one in which I am lucky to be a part!
I had a serious charge issue regarding fillings and it was promptly addressed by Dr. Alaina.
I had the distinct pleasure and blessing to have the MOST competent and professional dentist by far in all of South Carolina care for me a few months ago! Unfortunately I had experienced an incompetent dentist who had overlooked a cavity that was obviously missed when I had been examined twice during the past year! Due to his failure in recognizing an obvious dental cavity on X-rays done in their office, I had to subsequently seek out an oral surgeon!As a Registered Nurse from upstate New York, I can truthfully acknowledge that having such a competent team of professionals in a dental office of this caliber is extremely appreciated! Dr. Alina is truly amazing and by far exceeds my expectations 1000%! Her Dental Assistant Cortney is so competent, comforting, and professional! Her Dental Hygienist Allison is one of the best hygienists I have ever had! Notwithstanding, from entering her office and being met by Jennifer for appointment coordinator, and Cathy, her office manager—-you are treated like part of the family!!! The complete total package where a patient feels so extremely special to know that they are being cared for by the most competent Dentist and her team of professionals!! Thank you for all you are to so many who seek out the very best in professional treatment and care! May Our Lord bless you always!! Mary E Brescia RN

Dr. Alina is a great dentist! I had been to quite a few before finding her.She does amazing work!
Dr Alina Cretu is absolutely the best dentist I have ever had. Routine checkups are beyond anything I have ever experienced.My childhood silver fillings in back molars were suspect and required replacement. The procedures were completed with minimal discomfort for me. I highly recommend Dunes Dental!
Excellent once again!Friendly check in, no wait and a great pain free cleaning!Thanks for making it a pleasant experience!
I have been a patient for over 7 years and have always enjoyed the service and attention that the staff here gives. I subscribe to their insurance plan which is comparable to other market dental plans so it makes the services more affordable. Dr. Alina is a wonderful person, always checking in every visit to evaluate and make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. Jennifer and Cathy run the office which such a high level of professionalism and personality. A cleaning here is like a dental spa!
Dunes Dental Services, Dr. Alina and all her coworkers are the best! May The Lord richly bless you all! 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
So friendly and professional!

BEST DENTIST ON THE BEACH!Ivo Anguelov
My experience with Dr. Alina & her staff at Dunes Dental Services over the past several years has been absolutely amazing. Dr. Alina is very meticulous in her work, paying careful attention to every detail no matter how small. Her entire staff is friendly, helpful & professional giving me a reason to show off my smile every time I walk into their office.I’d also like to mention they offer a Continuing Care Membership that includes 2 yearly dental cleanings, x-rays, oral cancer screenings, discounts on other procedures & so much more. This was a great benefit for us since we had no dental insurance & I had a few issues that needed to be addressed immediately. I was given options that were honest, straight forward & positive. It was like a breath of fresh air.I highly recommend Dr. Alina & Dunes Dental Services … A place where even your soul smiles!
So Glad to have a Doctor & Staff taking care of my teeth, and you can trust them. Thank you
Dr. Alina and her staff have always treated me as a person rather than just a patient from the time I started going there. All of them are so friendly and truly are good people. I highly recommend Dunes Dental!!
Dr. Alina and all her staff are so kind and caring. They took the time to work me in (on a really busy day) when the ear pain I was having I thought may be related to a tooth turned out to be not the case at all. After all that she didn't even charge me for the visit or her time!I was recommended to her about 9 years ago and recommend her to others every chance I get!They're all so wonderful, knowledgeable, professional, and extremely caring! The Best around! Thank you!
Great care loved her
Dunes Dental is great! Allison did a great job cleaning my teeth today, as always. Dr Alina checked on me and reviewed my case. Everyone was very caring and helpful.
Dr Alina is the most caring dentist I’ve ever been too and the hygienist Brittany was outstanding! The entire staff is absolutely wonderful!
Very good visit. Girl who cleaned my teeth was great. Just love her.
Dr. Alina is very professional and thorough and cares about her patients. The staff does an excellent job helping make you visit enjoyable.
I would like to thank Dr. Alina, for a superb service in a cozy and friendly environment.Dr. Alina is the nicest, friendliest, and with the most gentle hands dentist I have ever been to since I moved. The office is super nice and squeaky clean. You don't even feel like you are at the dentist with the images of the clouds and palm trees on the ceiling.But even better than that, the entire staff went above and beyond to make sure that I was comfortable. They were so kind and concerned about my comfort that it took away all my stress I had about my tooth...I am more than happy and would highly recommend Dr. Alina!
Dr. Alina and her staff are wonderful. They are professional, caring and make you feel confident and comfortable. I can't say enough about Dr. Alina. She truly wants to do what's best for her clients. She gave me back my smile.
Dunes Dental is absolutely the BEST Dentistry that I have ever been to. The whole staff is knowledgeable, professional and caring beyond belief. They explain everything to the fullest and they always make sure you’re comfortable. This is more than a 5 Star Operation!!!!!! Dr. Alina, Jennifer, Courtney, Cathy and the WHOLE Crew are Fabulous!!!!
I searched all over the Grand Strand for the right fit in transitioning to a new dental facility for myself and my daughter. I was recommended to Dr Alina and I could not be more pleased! I feel comfort knowing we have Dr Alina and her staff to cultivate long term relationship for our oral health. Dr Alina and staff are down-to-earth, kind, honest and professional. It was clear to me that their clients are valued and that they strive for service excellence. THANK YOU!
Dunes Dental is an excellent place to be! Dr. Alina and her crew are always so professional, friendly, loving, and kind! Going to the dentist is actually pretty enjoyable now! They make you very comfortable and help ease any anxieties you have about being at "the dentist"! Highly recommend Dr. Alina and her crew!
Great, great group of people here who truly care about their patients!!
I am a new patient here. My initial visit took about 90 minutes because it was without a doubt, the most thorough dental exam I’ve ever had. From the reception I received to the technician Sammy, to the doctor, everyone made certain I felt welcomed and provided the best care possible. I highly recommend Dunes Dental!
Office itself was clean and comfortable. Wait time was zero to none. As someone who gets anxious about going to the dentist, I found the employees, as well as the doctor to be calming, warm, professional and treated me with ‘kid gloves’. A+
Best dentist in the world 😍 love my whitening and my treatments at Dr Alina 🙏🏽From someone who travels the world I can tell I never had such a good appointmentAll the team and the girls took really good care of me !!Can’t wait to be backTHANK YOUUU! 🥰
