Janae Thorn is the scheduling coordinator, financial coordinator, and insurance coordinator at Burgin Dentistry. About 12 years ago, she made a career change, and she fell in love with the dental field!! Prior to the dental field, Janae was an adjunct instructor at Clovis Community College for eight years. After “smelling lots of roses on the way”, she earned her Bachelor of Science from Eastern New Mexico University.
Janae loves the ever-changing dental days at Burgin Dentistry. Each day is new, fresh, and full of challenges, and she feels so blessed to be in a position to serve others in so many different ways. A smile is such a simple and easy gift to give to others, and Janae is honored to be the first smile patients see as they walk in Burgin Dentistry.
Janae is a Clovis native. She is blessed to be married to the same wonderful man, Robert, for almost 18 years, and she has three wonderful kiddos: Morgan, Dylan, and Brandon that keep her and Robert busy and young!

Consuelo is a Portales native, who has her husband Carlos and 3 amazing grown children, Iesha, Teddy and Mercedes. She also has 1 grandson, Josiah, who is the light of her life. Some of Consuelo's favorite pastimes are cooking, working in her yard and spending as much time as possible with her friends and family.
Consuelo came to the dental assisting field in the year 2000, when she felt she found the passion and joy of her life. There is nothing that brings her more joy than being able to change people's smiles and lives by helping them conquer their fears and anxiety of visiting the dentist. She has an extensive background in assisting in oral surgeries, such as sinus lifts and implants, and also has been assisting in sedation dentistry for over 10 years. Her motto is that the best thing you could ever do for your patient is to just be patient and listen to their concerns and fears. "It's amazing how much it will calm someone down just letting them know that you care and that being scared is ok". The only thing that makes it better is working with a team that shares the same goals and Consuelo feels that at Dr. Burgins office that is exactly what she has found. "The dental field is not easy. It's long hours, skipping lunches and being on the clock even when you are not "on the clock". But if you can help just one person over come their fear, overcome their anxiety or make their dream of a beautiful smile happen, and watching them share that smile with you, with tears in their eyes, it makes every minute worth it".
