Meet Dr. Anthony Indovina

Top Oral Surgeon in New Orleans

Dr. Anthony Indovina began his dental career at LSU in 1970. In the summer of 1971 while working on the railroad with his father, he suffered a traumatic facial injury. The subsequent months he spent in the care of oral surgeons trying to reconstruct his mouth and face, was the catalyst for the change in his career path. Dr. Indovina graduated LSU Dental School in 1974, first in his class and is a member of Omicron Kappa Epsilon. He was recruited by Dr. Jack Kent and became his first oral surgery resident when Dr. Kent became chairman of the Oral and Maxillofacial Department at LSU. Dr. Indovina completed his residency in June of 1977.

He began his private practice in July of 1977 and has been practicing for 45 years. His desire to give back brought him to LSU where he was a Clinical Associate Professor from 1978 until 2020. Dr. Indovina has received many awards and accolades in his 45 years but is most proud of coming full circle and serving on the board of the Jack Kent Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Foundation. This foundation was started by Dr. Jack Kent, Dr. Indovina’s mentor since 1974. Dr. Indovina is a native of New Orleans. He lives in Metairie with his wife, April and their daughter, Sophia. He has a son, Anthony A. Indovina, Jr., who is also an oral surgeon in Minnesota.

Dr. Indovina spends his leisure time at his farm in Carriere, Mississippi, enjoying the wildlife and fishing. He is also a member of Safari Club International, an organization that promotes wildlife conservation world wide. He is an avid hunter of Antler game and has traveled to countries such as Africa and New Zealand and is currently traveling to Latvia. Dr. Indovina enjoys a thriving practice in Marrero, Louisiana and has been serving the people on the Westbank for 45 years.
