 Dr. Salvaggio


Dr. Salvaggio graduated from L.S.U. School of Dentistry in 1989 and is a graduate of Tulane University where his primary subjects of interest were science and studio art. Since the practice of dentistry is to a certain degree an expression of both of these disciplines, the decision to enter the dental profession was an easy one for Dr. Salvaggio.

In addition to the completion of numerous hours of professional continuing education, Dr. Salvaggio has also refined his artistic skills by participating in various studio art classes, including ceramics and blown glass.

To keep current with the latest developments in dentistry, Dr. Salvaggio remains active in many professional organizations including:

  • American Dental Association
  • Academy of General Dentistry (Fellowship Status)
  • Louisiana Dental Association
  • New Orleans Dental Association (past board member and committee member for the New Orleans Dental Conference) 
  • World Clinical Laser Institute (Associate Fellowship)
  • Pierre Fauchard Academy
  • Spear Study Club
