More than anything, Katy loves to travel. Having been to 24 states and 3 countries, including Mexico, Canada, and Japan.

She also has taken an interest in exploring the great outdoors with a good pair of hiking boots!
Eileen is the Patient Coordinator and newest addition to our office. She recently moved to the area from Scranton, Pennsylvania where she worked as a receptionist at Dunder Mifflin - just kidding! Eileen has previously worked at a car dealership, as well as in the medical field at a doctor's office.
Eileen comes from a small family that is steadily growing. She is the oldest of 3 kids and the only girl. She has 8 nieces and nephews! When she is not visiting them, she likes to take road trips with her husband, whom she recently married in October of 2017. They are always looking for new adventures, so please suggest some places for them to go explore when you come in for your visit!

He looks forward to continuing his knowledge of the dental field by working at this office, and thanks Dr. Messina for this wonderful opportunity to work in such a relaxed, fun office.
Webster "Webbles" Messina
Webster is a newer addition to Dr. Messina's office! Dr. Messina adopted him from the Medina County Animal Shelter, and they've been having a blast ever since!
Webster likes long walks down the street. He loves brushing bones and taking extended naps. He even likes riding alongside Dr. Messina in the car! He will be spending time outside this summer, so if you see him, give him a wave or say hello! (Don't be surprised, though, if he doesn't respond. He is partially blind and deaf)
