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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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 starscamesha c.
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.
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 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.
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.
I am so glad I came to your office.I was in so much pain. I was very happy with the the ladies in this office.They were the best part of my visit.They were always very nice and always smiling.They were just fantastic. And the surgeon was excellent. And very nice and professional.Thank you all for the best service,ever. God Bless You all.A G.
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.
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.
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 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'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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
