  • 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.

    Caring & friendly staff starting at the front desk and continuing with every employee of Dr. Peter Zakursky. I saw an oral surgeon for an issue that I was having (along with a lot of pain) on Taylor Road and that doc(won’t mention his name at 4053 Taylor Rd) said he could schedule me for 6 weeks later to fix it and said my pain shouldn’t be that bad. I then called Dr. Zakursky at Goodove Oral Surgery and told them what was going on and that I was in a lot of pain. They scheduled me for a consultation the next morning and once I got in there, Dr. Zakursky and staff moved their schedule around to take care of me that day. The front desk & Dr Zakursky called the following day to see how I was doing. The entire staff is professional, caring, friendly and put their patients first. I highly recommend Dr Zakursky and his team for any oral surgery needs. They are AMAZING!!

    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.

    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.

  • My visit to Dr. Goodove was the best it could be under the circumstances. He preformed the same type of surgery on me several years ago and everything went very well. No problems and quick recovery.
    The office staff is very friendly and professional.
    I highly recommend this group.

    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.

    I was really anxious going in to get my wisdom teeth pulled, as I've never had more than a cleaning. Everyone here was incredibly kind a professional. They talked me through everything and were very calming. I'd recommend Goodove to anyone looking for dental surgery.

    Dr. Zagursky and Jillian were absolutely wonderful! I felt so cared for during my implant procedure. Dr. Zagursky’s impeccable bedside manner is by far one of the best experiences I’ve had in both the medical and dental fields in Hampton Roads. Both Jillian and Dr. Zagusrky called me a few hours later to check up on my healing. I cannot recommend this practice highly enough and while I do not wish to need another implant in the future, this is where I would return. Thank you all!

  • 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.

    The staff greeted you with a smile and very polite. My appointment was at 10:20 and was brought back in less than 10 minutes. Dr. Goodove can and met me and explained the procedure to me, I really appreciate that since this wasn’t the Dr. I seen on my initial visit. The procedure took last then a hour, my recovery is going well minimum pain and swelling. I highly recommend this practice five stars doesn’t do them justice.

    My husband was experiencing severe pain and recently required emergency surgery to extract the remainder of a broken tooth. Dr. Green was able to promptly diagnose the issue and quickly work my husband in for an appointment. We were very pleased with the prompt service, professionalism, and care shown by Dr. Green and the staff while at the Chesapeake office.

  • My name is Brynn W. I normally don’t do the review thing but this time I felt like I needed to. I came to Goodove Oral Surgery a couple of weeks ago for an extraction. I was extremely nervous. I was put at ease by Amber and Dr Zagursky. They was very comforting during my whole procedure. I didn’t realize the tooth was even out. Amber explained everything that I could expect after an extraction and she answered every question I had. She also called me later that day to make sure I was doing ok and to see if I had anymore questions. She was exceptional. The whole office was extremely professional and nice. I would recommend everyone to come here for their dental needs.

  • 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!

    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!

  • At the age of 69, I had to have one of my wisdom teeth removed, during my consultation and during the actual removal the doctor and the staff was very respectful and courteous, they made me feel as if I had been a patient of theirs for twenty years everyone was very professional and caring. During my prep and the removal, a young lady (NeKeta) was so kind and friendly that she made the procedure a delight during what I thought was going to be a bad day for me ... She is what customer/patient service should be everywhere ... Thank You “Goodove”

    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.

  • I have been trying years to get my wisdom teeth out, but I’ve always been scared. I was referred to one dentist however he only provided numbing medicine and I wanted to be put to sleep. Also another kept giving me the run around. So eventually I was referred to Goodove. First visit was hard for me because I get anxiety so I had to reschedule and I didn’t think Dr. Berry understood that at first. Finally came back and was able to have a relaxing conversation with Dr. Berry. My appointment was yesterday and it was over in 30 minutes. I still had effects of the anesthesia up to 6 hours later, but it was a very pleasant and painless experience. Even post-op I was not in pain.

    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!!

    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.

    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.

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. ❤

  • 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!

  • Check in was fast if you filled out the forms online before your appointment. Staff was friendly and i was called in the back within 5 minutes. Once in the room, consultation was quick and straight to the point. Dr Goodove explained everything. I was able to get an appointment the next day for surgery. It was all over within 20 minutes and i had no pain at all afterwards. Three days later and i have not taken any pain pills that was prescribed. Best experience ever. Definitely above 5 stars

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

    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).

    Dr Green and his staff are friendly, professional and skilled in oral surgery. My son had his wisdom teeth extracted and the nursing staff eased his anxieties while Dr Green talked him through the initial steps in the procedure. One day post-surgery, Dr Green called personally to see how my son was doing. It’s a comfort to have that level of doctor-patient interaction. I would recommend Goodove Oral Surgery for your oral surgery needs.

After Exposure of an Impacted Tooth

 

Do not disturb the wound. If surgical packing was placed, leave it alone. The pack helps to keep the tooth exposed. If it gets dislodged or falls out do not get alarmed.

 

Bleeding

 

Some bleeding or redness in the saliva is normal for 24 hours. Excessive bleeding which results in your mouth filling rapidly with blood can frequently be controlled by biting with pressure on a gauze pad placed directly on the bleeding wound for 30 minutes. If bleeding continues please call for further instructions.

 

Swelling

 

Swelling is a normal occurrence after surgery. To minimize swelling, apply an ice bag or a plastic bag or towel filled with ice cubes on the cheek in the area of surgery. Apply the ice continuously as much as possible for the first 36 hours.

 

Diet

 

Drink plenty of fluids. Avoid hot liquids or food. Soft food and liquids should be eaten on the day of surgery. Return to a normal diet as soon as possible unless otherwise directed.

 

Pain

 

You should begin taking pain medication as soon as you feel the local anesthetic wearing off. For moderate pain, 1 or 2 Tylenol or Extra Strength. Tylenol may be taken every 3-4 hours. Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) may be taken instead of Tylenol. Ibuprofen bought over the counter comes in 200 mg tablets: 2-3 tablets may be taken every 3-4 hours as needed for pain. For severe pain, the prescribed medication should be taken as directed.

 

Oral Hygiene

 

Mouth cleanliness is essential to good healing. Clean your mouth thoroughly after each meal beginning the day after surgery. Brush your teeth as best you can. Rinse with warm salt water (1/2 teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water) six times a day. Continue this procedure until healing is complete.

 

REMEMBER: A clean wound heals better and faster.

 

Activity

 

Keep physical activities to a minimum immediately following surgery. If you are considering exercise, throbbing or bleeding may occur. If this occurs, you should discontinue exercising. Be aware that your normal nourishment intake is reduced. Exercise may weaken you. If you get light headed, stop exercising.
