Dr. Downing is great! My husband had to get an emergency root canal and was able to get an appointment the same day. He had a great experience and I am now switching to Dr. Downing as well.Kenna
Yes, I have been going to Cottonwood Dental for years. I’ve always had an excellent experience. Dr. Downing got me through a surprise tooth extraction very smoothly. I was in tears because I was not expecting that, but everyone comforted me through it. I love going to a dental office with friendly people surrounding me. I have confidence that my dental needs will always be excellently cared for by Dr Downing and his staff.Pamela
What a great team. As a new patient, I needed care as soon as possible and they were great to get me in quickly. In fact, within a day of my initial call. They made me feel at ease, were friendly and humorous. The office was clean, comfortable and equipped with what seemed to be the most advanced tools… which makes procedures quicker and as comfortable as can be. I would recommend them for sure!Misty
What a great office! In and out for a crown prep in less than one hour. All of the staff was friendly and just wonderful to work with.Amber
Friendly and knowledgeable staff put me at ease (I have really bad anxiety when it comes to the dentist) . The facility is absolutely beautiful and comes with an array of comfort options. Netflix, Pandora radio, and weighted blankets. And even the checkout was a pleasant experience, as they explained the expenses and what the insurance would cover, putting me at ease so I could financially plan for the year.Hillary
Cottonwood Family Dental was very helpful to schedule me in quickly with a broken filling. They are open Saturday’s which is great for my busy schedule.Brinna
