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.
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 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.
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.
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.

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

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.
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 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.
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.Bre W.
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 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.
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.
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).A G.
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.Elisa K.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
They removed 3 of my wisdom teeth today, I got the gas option and it was well worth it. I live in Franklin and I drove all the way to the Virginia Beach location because of the reviews. I have HORRIBLE anxiety and I freaked out while he was numbing me and they helped calm me down and talked to me the whole time. They are very caring the nurse & the doctor! Im surprised because the doctors usually don’t care it’s always the nurses but this surgeon was AWESOME a huge thanks to y’all. I would recommend y’all to anyone! God bless!Destiny C.
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.
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.

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!Jordan B.
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 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.
