Consuelo is a Portales native, who has her husband Carlos and 3 amazing grown children, Iesha, Teddy and Mercedes. She also has 2 grandsons, Josiah and Luca who are 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. Burgin's 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." If you can help just one person overcome their fear, overcome their anxiety, make their dream of a beautiful smile happen, and watch them share that smile with you, with tears in their eyes, it makes every minute worth it."
