As a premier provider of oral and maxillofacial surgery to Albuquerque, NM, and the surrounding communities, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Associates of NM proudly welcomes you to our practice. Our board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons Lionel M Candelaria DDS, FACS, and John Mitchell DDS offer a complete range of mouth, teeth, and facial region expertise.

Active and innovative, our doctors are involved in many aspects of the Albuquerque community and repeatedly seek to improve their practices through continued education, advanced technology upgrades, and safety training. We are affiliated with the local hospitals, and Dr. Mitchell and Dr. Candelaria—the only Fellow in the American College of Surgery in New Mexico—offer a cleft palate program through our practice.

To provide an extra measure of comfort, confidence, and safety for our patients, we require our staff members to regularly attend emergency training and anesthesia safety courses. Our entire team is trained and certified in ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support) and PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support), and as specialists in deep sedation general anesthesia, our anesthesia team is made up of University of New Mexico certified registered nurses and board-certified anesthesiologists. Your safety and confidence matter to us!

Premium Dental implants

Our highly trained doctors are prepared to guide you through a series of procedures required for dental implant surgery. We are dedicated to providing you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your unique oral health needs. Our practice uses cutting-edge technology to ensure comfort, convenience and optimal results. We look forward to restoring your smile!

Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Our practice specializes in extracting wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, and our qualified team is trained in working with young people to make them feel as comfortable and confident as possible. We know that although these procedures are common and encouraged, they can be uncomfortable. Committed to exceptional patient care, Drs. Candelaria and Mitchell are experienced in delivering anesthesia while making every effort to completely remove the molars and minimize discomfort.

General Anesthesia

Your comfort and safety are our priority. As oral surgeons, Drs. Candelaria and Mitchell are among the most qualified to extract teeth, place implants, and bone graft as they have attended several years of training in a hospital after dental school, including extensive instruction and practice administering anesthesia. You are in expert hands at Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Associates of NM.
