    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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”

  • 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.

    I have been here a few times to get a tooth pulled. Dr Goodove is amazing, each time has been pain free and the staff is great. They all make you feel comfortable and treat you as if you are family. I will always go here and highly recommend them. A big thanks to all there.

    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!

    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.

    My 12 year old had 2 teeth extracted for braces. I asked him three days after the appointment if he needed any Tylenol. He said "I never needed any, it never hurt." Pain-free experience. Staff were great, efficient and polite. Doctor was perfect, succinct, professional, not condescending at all. Refreshing dental experience. Highly recommend this group.

    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. ❤

  • 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!

    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!

    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).

  • 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.

    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!

    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.

  • 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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • I was referred to Dr. Goodove after another doctor failed to numb my mouth to pull out a back tooth. I explain to his staff my situation and they were fast getting me an appointment even put me on a waiting list in case of a cancellation. During my consultation he and his staff were friendly and professional. Dr Goodove examined my mouth and said he did not have to put me to sleep to pull this tooth. He would just numb my mouth if that was ok with me. I was scared because of my previous experiences with two other dentists but I said ok. I really didn’t want to be put to sleep for one tooth. He gave me instructions on what to do before my appointment and in less than a week he pulled my tooth. He was fast and I didn’t feel a thing. If I have to have anymore major work done to my mouth I will surely be quick to call his office.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

    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.

Sleep Apnea

 

People with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) have disrupted sleep and low blood oxygen levels. When obstructive sleep apnea occurs, the tongue is sucked against the back of the throat. This blocks the upper airway and airflow stops. When the oxygen level in the brain becomes low enough, the sleeper partially awakens, the obstruction in the throat clears, and the flow of air starts again, usually with a loud gasp.

 

Repeated cycles of decreased oxygenation lead to very serious cardiovascular problems. Additionally, these individuals suffer from excessive daytime sleepiness, depression, and loss of concentration.

 

Some patients have obstructions that are less severe called Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS). In either case, the individuals suffer many of the same symptoms.

 

The first step in treatment resides in recognition of the symptoms and seeking appropriate consultation. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons offer consultation and treatment options.

 

In addition to a detailed history, the doctors will assess the anatomic relationships in the maxillofacial region. With cephalometic (skull x-ray) analysis, the doctors can ascertain the level of obstruction. Sometimes a naso-pharyngeal exam is done with a flexible fiber-optic camera. To confirm the amount of cardiovascular compromise and decreased oxygenation levels, a sleep study may be recommended to monitor an individual overnight.

 

There are several treatment options available. An initial treatment may consist of using a nasal CPAP machine that delivers pressurized oxygen through a nasal mask to limit obstruction at night. One of the surgical options is an uvulo-palato-pharyngo-plasty (UPPP), which is performed in the back of the soft palate and throat. A similar procedure is sometimes done with the assistance of a laser and is called a laser assisted uvulo-palato-plasty (LAUPP). In other cases, a radio-frequency probe is utilized to tighten the soft palate. These procedures usually performed under light IV sedation in the office.

 

In more complex cases, the bones of the upper and lower jaw may be repositioned to increase the size of the airway (orthognathic surgery). This procedure is done in the hospital under general anesthesia and requires a one to two day overnight stay in the hospital.

 

OSA is a very serious condition that needs careful attention and treatment. Most major medical plans offer coverage for diagnosis and treatment.
