I went to Dr. Dowd for a checkup and cleaning, where the need for a crown arose. Dr. Dowd and his staff are very professional and caring. The cleaning was one of the most thorough I ever had. Dr. Dowd and his assistant took time and care to make sure my crown was as good as possible while ensuring my comfort every step of the way. I was pleasantly surprised when Dr. Dowd called me the evening after the crown was done to ask how I was doing. He and his staff are sincere about giving high quality care.
