Dr. Anthony Indovina graduated the LSU Oral Maxillofacial Program in 1977. In the summer of 1974 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. Oral surgery is truly his calling. He is sympathetic to his patients because he has been in their position. For 36 years he has practiced with the same level of concern and professionalism. His desire to give back brought him to LSU where he has been a Clinical Associate Professor since 1978. Dr. Indovina has received many awards and accolades in his 36 year tenure but none as rewarding as the smiles and thank you’s he receives from from one of his patients. Dr. Indovina is a native of New Orleans. He resides 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.
