Patient Testimonials

My daughter went today to have 2 teeth extracted at the Chesapeake office. Dr. Green was so amazing and fast and my daughter says she felt no pain and his assistant Nikita was outstanding. Great job to both of them and she has now said she will not go anywhere else for her teeth. Thank you so much.

This is in reference to the Suffolk location.

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. So eventually I was referred to Goodove. First visit was hard for me because I get anxiety so I had to reschedule. 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.

Had a crown on a tooth with a fractured root. Needed to have the remainder of the tooth/root extracted ASAP. Was able to get an appointed the next morning!! Went in, after consulting with the staff and DR, was able to leave with the extraction complete and implant started!! Was extremely happy with their professionalism, expertise and, as a self pay patient, their price! I am very happy I chose Goodove Oral Surgery & Dental Implants!!

Dr. Goodove and his staff were amazing from start to finish. My daughter had a great experience while getting her wisdom teeth pulled, and continues to heal nicely. I will definitely take my other daughters to Dr. Goodove when the time comes for them to get their wisdom teeth removed. Would highly recommend Goodove Oral Surgery!

Oral Pathology

 

The inside of the mouth is normally lined with a special type of skin (mucosa) that is smooth and coral pink in color. Any alteration in this appearance could be a warning sign for a pathological process. The most serious of these is oral cancer. The following can be signs at the beginning of a pathologic process or cancerous growth:

 

  • Reddish patches (erythroplasia) or whitish patches (leukoplakia) in the mouth.
  • A sore that fails to heal and bleeds easily.
  • A lump or thickening on the skin lining the inside of the mouth.
  • Chronic sore throat or hoarseness. Difficulty in chewing or swallowing.

 

These changes can be detected on the lips, cheeks, palate, and gum tissue around the teeth, tongue, face and/or neck. Pain does not always occur with pathology, and curiously, is not often associated with oral cancer. However, any patient with facial and/or oral pain without an obvious cause or reason may also be at risk for oral cancer.

 

We would recommend performing an oral cancer self-examination monthly and remember that your mouth is one of your body’s most important warning systems. Do not ignore suspicious lumps or sores. Please contact us so we may help.
