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. Dr. Z 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.
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.Suzanna K.
Staff very professional and caring. My 11yo grandaughter had to have a tooth pulled. Very impressed with the fact that they called later in the day to check on her.
P.S. My only concern was the fact I didn't know until they were taking her back that I couldn't go with her. She has anxiety disorder. I am a retired Neonatal Nurse Practitioner and would not have been bothered to be with her during the procedure. Her regular dentist always let's me be in the room for any procedures.They did promise if she had any issues they would come get me. The front desk receptionist even went back during the procedure to check on her so I really appreciated that. Only other thing is the online new patient form. It is not at all set up for a child as a patient.Terry P.
I really appreciate this oral surgeon office. I had an impacted wisdom tooth removed by laughing gas. Was extremely nervous, I mean who wouldn’t be, but the procedure was super smooth. I think I was worried for nothing. Dr. Z was amazing. My wisdom was removed in as little as 15-20 minutes. If necessary, I will be coming back, I will not look any further.
Prayerfully my healing process goes even smoother! Would totally recommend.
UPDATE: It’s been three days and I was worried when the anesthesia wore off I would experience excruciating pain, but I haven’t had any pain or soreness at all. The side of my face, where the tooth was extracted did swell up pretty huge (golfball size) , which was completely expected, but the swelling is now going down. I personally haven’t needed the pain medicine that were prescribed to me, which is amazing because I really do not enjoy taking pills of any sort unless I seriously have to. Dr. Z is amazing I really cannot stress that enough. Definitely one of the best. Pay attention to the reviews, they are not leading you astray.Angelique J.
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.
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!Elizabeth M.
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.
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”Solomon P.
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!A G.
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.Mattie C.
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.
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.
It’s really easy, comfortable and affordable! They accept Tricare which is a huge bonus but outside of that everything is so well organized. Everyone who works there, whether intended or not, really made me feel comfortable and at ease as if I’d have been going there for years. Once my tooth was pulled they even took the time to make sure I knew what I needed and thoroughly told me how to take care of myself. I love it!Jaquaye G.
I am so glad I came to your office.I was in so much pain.

And very nice and professional.Thank you all for the best service,ever. God Bless You all.A G.
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.

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.
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 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.Whitney C.
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.
5 stars all the way! Our experience with this office was top of the line. Dr. Zagursky and his staff were phenomenal. From the consultation to even after the surgery, they made sure we understood everything and followed up with us, and answered any and all questions. Dr. Zagursky takes his time when he meets with families and he made me feel like we were his only clients. I would definitely recommend this team and I would go back for any future dental/surgical needs.Joy P.
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.
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.
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!!Mark O.
I was in excellent hands with the staff at Goodove Oral Surgery. They made me feel special and very comfortable. Dr. Goodove is a wonderful surgeon and shows great compassion as well as his staff. I wish that I can remember his assistant’s name! I’ve had anyone do for me what she had done. Thank you all so very much!!!Sharon P.
I highly recommend this place for your oral surgery procedures. Staff was friendly, and put you at ease. Made sure I was comfortable at all times, and put my nerves at ease. Surgeon was awesome! And Mrs Neketa was a great help from the time I went in the back, til I was done. Thank you so much for everything.Alnika C.
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.
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.
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.
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 daughter had her surgery this morning and the Doctor, Neketa, front desk staff, and back office staff were so amazing from the first visit. I would recommend going here for your oral care and dental implant needs. The office was clean and they are practicing safety. Thanks to you all for taking care of my daughter.Tamesha T.
After Tooth Extraction
After tooth extraction, its important for a blood clot to form to stop the bleeding and begin the healing process. That’s why we ask you to bite on a gauze pad for 30-45 minutes after the appointment. If the bleeding or oozing still persists, place another gauze pad and bite firmly for another 30 minutes. You may have to do this several times.
After the blood clot forms, it is important not to disturb or dislodge the clot as it aids healing. Do not rinse vigorously, suck on straws, smoke, drink alcohol or brush teeth next to the extraction site for 72 hours. These activities will dislodge or dissolve the clot and retard the healing process. Limit vigorous exercise for the next 24 hours as this will increase blood pressure and may cause more bleeding from the extraction site.
After the tooth is extracted you may feel some pain and experience some swelling. An ice pack or an unopened bag of frozen peas or corn applied to the area will keep swelling to a minimum. Take pain medications as prescribed. The swelling usually subsides after 48 hours.
Use the pain medication as directed. Call the office if the medication doesn’t seem to be working. If antibiotics are prescribed, continue to take them for the indicated length of time, even if signs and symptoms of infection are gone. Drink lots of fluid and eat nutritious soft food on the day of the extraction. You can eat normally as soon as you are comfortable.
It is important to resume your normal dental routine after 24 hours. This should include brushing and flossing your teeth at least once a day. This will speed healing and help keep your mouth fresh and clean.
After a few days you will feel fine and can resume your normal activities. If you have heavy bleeding, severe pain, continued swelling for 2-3 days, or a reaction to the medication, call our office immediately at (757) 412-2002.
