Kind of a hassle with all the COVID 19 precautions, but I'm glad they try so hard to keep everyone safe. They do a great job easing the "white knuckle flight" that many of us experience in a dental chair. Procedure and options discussed at length at initial visit, and they actually listen to you as the patient. Procedure was painless. Post operative instructions were thorough. Don't know how it could be any better (other than not needing the service to begin with).Chuck R.
Dr Goodove is a great Oral Surgeon and I would highly recommend him for any procedure. I especially appreciate that Dr Goodove makes sure that I am never in any pain.
(My experiences were Tooth Removal, Dental Implant, lancing swelling, and removing scar tissue from inside my cheek)
My experiences with Dr. Goodove and his staff began earlier this year when I had a root canal fail and ended up referred to have the swelling drained. Unfortunately the tooth could not be saved. During a pandemic is the worst time to have a problem with everyone shut down. Dr Goodove and his staff especially Carrie went above and beyond to help me. They kept in contact with me during the shut down (thank you Carrie) and called me in to the office (which was closed) to remove the tooth.
This week I have begun the dental implant process and my experiences with Dr Goodove, Carrie, Amy and the entire staff has been consistent since I first met them several months ago. All of them have been professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate. Thank you.Danyelle R.
My daughter had surgery and that was her first time. She was nervous and the sad thing about it nobody could go back there with her due to the coronavirus and she only twelve years old. But the nurse that was back there with her was very amazing. She assure me that she was going to be right there beside her and make sure she would be alright and she did just that. The nurse made my daughter feel safe and comfortable she talk to her and everything. The staff called me and let me know what was going on and to let me know that my daughter was doing good. And the best thing about it they didn't take long. I will recommend family and friends to this dentist office.Sherry C.
Absolutely wonderful experience; for wisdom teeth removal. Very thoughtful staff. Loved that I never had to deal with insurance claims, they handled it all. My daughter's surgery took place in a hospital due to a medication she is on and the doctor wanting to be extra safe; I really appreciated that. Once again, their office staff handled all the details which was amazing. I would highly recommend Dr.Goodove and his associates to my friends.Lisa R.
I love this Dentistry. From the 1st visit the staff and Dr. was pleasant. They made sure my son was comfortable. Dr explain everything that my son primary Dr did not explain for me to understande in lame man terms. This office went beyond their duties and handled things for me that I could not do for myself. I am so ever grateful. ❤Latasha H.
I was referred to Dr. Goodove after another doctor failed to numb my mouth to pull out a back tooth. I explain to his staff my situation and they were fast getting me an appointment even put me on a waiting list in case of a cancellation. During my consultation he and his staff were friendly and professional. Dr Goodove examined my mouth and said he did not have to put me to sleep to pull this tooth. He would just numb my mouth if that was ok with me. I was scared because of my previous experiences with two other dentists but I said ok. I really didn’t want to be put to sleep for one tooth. He gave me instructions on what to do before my appointment and in less than a week he pulled my tooth. He was fast and I didn’t feel a thing. If I have to have anymore major work done to my mouth I will surely be quick to call his office.Tonya M.
I will never go anywhere else when I need oral surgery! Absolutely a phenomenal place to go! I have severe dental problems; decay/ I needed a tooth extracted immediately. I stopped eating a couple of days ago because it was just too painful.
The front desk staff were beyond nice and accommodating, and Delanie and Dr. Goodove were fantastic. They worked efficiently and very effectively and the communication was flawless. No pain and I just had this done today! Affordable and wonderful!
Thank you so much to all of you that made my pain go away and my day better. I truly appreciate your help!Jordan B.
The staff at Goodove Oral Surgery in Chesapeake were exceptional. Dr. Zagursky and Neketa were compassionate, fast, and efficient. If I had more wisdome teeth to be pulled, I would certainly visit them. Thank you both for making me comfortable, answering my questions, and providing quality and safe patient care.dana l.
Scott and Kelley were great. They explained everything that was going to happen. Gave me the right amount of Novocain so that I wouldn't feel any pain, but not so much so that my fell onto the floor. I don't like that either. His office has also helped me navigate the loss of my job and using Cobra to retain my insurance, and the coordination of my benefits. The only drawback is that there isn't handicapped parking near the door to his office.Rebecca W.
My son had his wisdom teeth pulled by Goodove and from the 1st time we came into the office until his actual extraction appointment they we a true pleasure. They were funny and made you feel very comfortable. They did a great job with my son and were very informative from day one. They scheduled his appointment very quickly which I really appreciated cause I wanted the teeth out before school started. They truly made us feel very comfortable and that means a lot when it comes to caring for my son. True customer service.Taneka M.
I'm a bit nervous about dental work. I came for an evaluation and it turned out that I needed a broken molar removed. The procedure was quick and aside from a slight bit of pressure, I never felt a thing! Since I have a rather crowded mouth, I elected not to replace the tooth, but I am thrilled that it has been prepared in a way that I can have an implant later if I change my mind. I will definitely go back to Dr. Goodove if I ever need an oral surgeon again. What a great experience!Todd T.
I really appreciate this oral surgeon office. I had an impacted wisdom tooth removed by laughing gas. Was extremely nervous but the procedure was super smooth. Doctor was amazing. My wisdom was removed in as little as 15-20 minutes. I will be coming back.
Prayerfully my healing process goes even smoother! Would totally recommend.Angelique J.
Best Dentist Experience I Have Ever Had In My Entire Life. I visited the suffolk office with dr. Green.Super Professional and quick removal of my four impacted wisdom teeth same day.Highly recommended if you are one of those ppl who are afraid of dental work. I Felt Super Comfortable . The entire staff was the best ! I initially wanted to go there so i could be sedated but they where so good i think I've overcame my fear of dental work. I cannot stress enough how great they where to meangel b.
Total Pros! I had an emergency during the quarantine and Dr Goodove was able to see me. They had me in and out quickly while making me feel safe with their strict adherence to COVID hygiene protocols. 24 hours later my mouth is healing well and I have no pain. Highly recommend Dr Goodove and his top notch staff!John W.
Dr. Goodove and his staff were once again great from start to finish. My daughter had her wisdom teeth removed and everything went smoothly. This is my second daughter to have this procedure here and I will definitely be bringing my youngest here as well. Would definitely highly recommend Dr. Goodove Oral Surgery.Margot M.
My visit on June 9, 2020 was a very pleasant one. I was in good care with Dr Zagursky and Meaghan. I went in for an extraction and bone grafting for a future implant. My questions were all answered and I appreciated the follow up call from Meaghan after my procedure. I feel confident that the rest of my procedures will go just as well.Or'Shasa B.
Both of my appointments were absolutely organized and on time. The entire staff was professional and kind. My actual surgery was amazing, I was given step by step knowledge of what was happening and Dr Goodove was wonderful. He was gentle, kept me informed of what was happening with each step. I was very nervous and anxious but Jackie and Dr Goodove made me feel so comfortable. I loved the information package given to me for instructions and food suggestions for my post op care. Something I have referred back to several times. I had to drive one hour and forty five minutes but it was absolutely worth it.Ramona M.
Having worked in the medical field for over 35 years, I've had many experiences with staff and doctors, both good and bad. I can tell you first hand that the entire staff and Dr. Berry were wonderful during my surgery at their Suffolk office. Every one of them was professional with a personal touch of care for individual thrown in! Thank you all so much, I would refer anyone needing your services to contact you! For the very best in oral surgery and other services, don't hesitate to contact Goodove.Betty S.
The office took me quickly because I was in pain. They were so organized in the office. The doctors assistant was absolutely super. She was caring and so professional. Talked with me because I was scared and nervous. Can't say enough about her. Doctor did a good job and cared enough because I came such a long distance. No problems after surgery. Followed all directions for a good recovery.Vuokko T.
Another wonderful surgery!! Two extractions, and my mouth feels 10 times better. It’s sore obviously, but not like what I was dealing with while they were in. I’ll take this pain over that pain any day of the week! Dr. Goodove and his staff are perfect!! I’m always nervous when it comes to anything to do with my teeth, but I trust them to no end! I would never go anywhere else! You want a surgeon that knows what he’s doing, come here! You want friendly and professional staff that embody a great surgeon, look no further, they have it all!! I could not be more happy to have found such a wonderful surgeon and affordable! Absolutely incredible people here!
Thank you so much for helping me! See you next time!A G.
I am very pleased. No surgery is fun but Dr. Zagursky made it bearable. I was very embarrassed & humiliated with my teeth. He made me feel very comfortable about myself. He has a down to earth easy to talk too type of personality. I can not praise him enough for the quality of his work & bedside manners! THANK YOU! I highly recommend Goodove Oral Surgery to anyone in need.David P.
I just want to give a BIG thank you to Dr Z and his assistant, Meagan. They were so patient with me and thorough throughout the procedure. Constantly asking how I was and explaining each step of the procedure. I would highly recommend Goodove to anyone and will definitely go to them if need be in the future.Cheryl R.
My son had his wisdom teeth pulled by Dr. Goodove and we drove in from Richmond to see him! Everyone at the office was super friendly and professional. Procedure was quick also - we were in and out in less than an hour, and we heard from the office several times the following week to check on him.Allison H.
My 9 year old son has diagnosed anxiety. The way Dr. Green spoke to him directly and made him feel at ease prepared him for his procedure and took away his fear. The day of the surgery My son asked for Dr, Green, he had no fits, no tears, few nerves. I really appreciate how the nurse as well as the doctor followed up with me personally to make sure he was recovering well. I would recommend this office.Renae M.
Because of Covid19, office procedures are a little different. It's obvious they are committed to ensuring everyone feels safe. They have rearranged their waiting room, limited the number of patients allowed in the room and masks are required. There is a short medical form to complete and they are checking patient temperatures. Dr. Zagursky removed a wisdom tooth for me and the procedure was quick and almost pain-free. There was some discomfort from the local anesthetic, but it was minimal. Throughout the procedure Dr. Zagursky showed concern for my comfort. The hygienist explained pre and post surgery procedures and made sure I understood what was being done and what I could expect post op. I am very satisfied with the precautions they are taking during this Covid19 outbreak and my treatment as a patient by all involved was excellent. I would recommend this office to friends and family.Deborah W.
I was a little nervous because I don't like needles. But after that it was like sitting in your car while your getting your tires changed.. Some jurking and some sounds but completely painless!! Maybe it was the nitro that let me relax fully and no pain really made the difference.. And don't get me started on the staff. Amber!! Omg she was so informative and super easy to talk to. The rest of the staff were very polite as well. Thanks Goodove Oral Surgery!!Amanda A.
From my first consultation up into having my oral surgery which was on 7/21 the experience from the front desk on to the interacting with Miss Amber and Dr. Zagursky was amazing!!!! They really made me feel comfortable first on until the end... I am really glad that I was taken care of by Dr. Zagursky and Miss Amber and I will recommend anyway to go to them for any situation....Thanks again!!!👍Sharika J.
The team at Goodove oral surgery in Chesapeake was so professional and attentive. My son got his wisdom teeth taken out by them and they were wonderful. They walked me through the procedure, gave me step by step of everything they would do and made me feel so comfortable with putting my baby in their hands. Even after surgery they followed up with a phone call and made sure everything was good with us. They were fantastic and I highly recommend them.Nadia W.

Procedure was very smooth. The sugeon came in, numbed me up, and pulled my tooth out. It was so smooth I hadn't even realized that he had finished. The whole process maybe took 15 minutes. His assistant was the cherry on top. She explained everything to me and was clear on describing my issue as well as steps to take on after care. I will recommend this team for anyone.Nathaniel H.
