Meet the Team


We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.

Seth Adams

Office Manager

I am responsible for all aspects of running the practice and ensuring that all areas of the office are running smoothly, from the patient experience to staff performance and business growth. I enjoy the ability to help and assist people. So often, people come in with significant dental needs, and we do all we can to get them in quickly and make sure they walk away feeling better. Those moments are very rewarding. Of course, working with my brother and best friend, Dr. Adams, is also a lot of fun. With Dr. Messer and our staff, this office is great to be a part of!

I am a fifth generation native of Arizona and moved out to Missouri in 2013 to work with my brother. We love beautiful Missouri! After high school, I served a two-year mission in Brazil for the LDS church. I met my wife, Chelsey, in 2008 and we were married in 2009. We have three dogs that were our “kids” until our sweet little girl Adilyn Avi came into our lives in January of 2015. My decompression time usually involves watching boxing, playing Xbox, or doing a puzzle, but my favorite pastime and somewhat obsession is board games! I could play board games for days straight!

Christy Cooper

Front Office Manager/ Treatment Coordinator

I’m one of the first people our patients meet when they come into the office. In addition to tending to patients’ scheduling needs, I also take care of the financial aspects of the office, check lab cases in and out, and even assist when necessary. Our patients are such wonderful people, and I’m grateful to have the opportunity to help them attain the dental treatments they need for healthy teeth and a happy smile.

I’ve been married for more than 30 years and have been blessed with eight children. Our grandchildren are the light of our day. In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching tennis, and playing tennis with my grandchildren.

Our Dental Hygienists

Our dental hygienists take great pride in giving each patient individualized care during regular checkups and cleanings. In addition to polishing your teeth and examining the health of your gums, our hygienists will also give you all the information you need to keep your teeth healthy and your smile looking its best!

Katie Berghoff

Being a dental hygienist allows me to work directly with patients to improve their oral health and quality of life. I love getting to know each patient and teaching them something valuable regarding their oral health that they did not know before. This office is a great place to work; we all work together as a team to get the job done!

I am originally from Kelso, Missouri, and moved to Farmington to be closer to my job. Family is very important to me. Although I have moved away, I still talk with many of them nearly every day. Before I became a hygienist, I worked for my uncle at his restaurant. This job was the beginning of my love for cooking, which I enjoy doing in my free time.

Our Dental Assistants

Our dental assistants are here to make your experience in our office as easy and stress-free as possible. Usually found working alongside the dentist, our assistants help with many of the procedures and treatments you’ll receive at our office. They are dedicated individuals who look forward to building a relationship with you and your family.

Marcy Stumbaugh

I have worked at Fredericktown Family Dental for almost 13 years. This is the only office I have worked in, and I can’t imagine being in a better place. My coworkers bring a smile to my face each and every day, and our patients are some of the most interesting people I’ve ever met.

I am married and have two girls, ages 13 and nine, and we are expecting our third daughter in May of 2016.  We live in the country and have several animals, including dogs, goats, chickens, rabbits, and a cat!

Samantha Bailey

I consider myself a team player, always willing to expand my duties and knowledge for the betterment of our team, our office, and our patients’ dental experience. I think it is fun to learn about all the new and improved methods in dentistry. Our team gives 100% to our patients. The results are just as rewarding: seeing a patient be confident with his or her new smile.

My favorite pastime is being with my family. I enjoy the outdoors and often do volunteer work for our community. I’m a working wife and mother and am fortunate to have work and home balance. 

Hillary Allebach

The best part of working at Fredericktown Family Dental is the people! I love our patients and want to give them a comfortable, educational dental experience at each and every visit. I’m also very fortunate to work with our wonderful doctors and staff. We all go above and beyond to make sure our patients are happy!

My husband Bill and I have three kids, Addy, Henry, and Ella Jo. Three dogs and two cats make our family complete. In my free time, I help the family farm elderberries.
