Dr Douglas Dow is the third generation of dentists in the Dow family to practice dentistry in Springfield, Oregon.  Dr Dow’s grandfather, Dr. William Dow, came to Springfield, OR in 1927 to practice dentistry.  His sons, Robert and William, also chose careers in dentistry: Robert as a general dentist and a past member of the Oregon Board of Dentistry and William as an owner of a dental lab. William’s sons, Glenn and Doug, followed in the family tradition as well. Glenn followed in his father’s footsteps and continues to produce quality dental lab work, while Douglas followed in his grandfather’s and uncle’s footsteps to become a general dentist. 

Dr Douglas Dow graduated from Linfield college in McMinnville and went on to graduate from the University of Oregon Dental School in Portland (now known as Oregon Health Sciences University School of Dental Medicine) in 1977. 

Dr Dow recently welcomed his son, Dr Coleman Dow, as an associate into the practice following his graduation from Oregon Health & Sciences University School of Dentistry in Portland.  Dr Coleman is excited to join the family practice and continue as the fourth generation of Dow’s practicing general dentistry in the Eugene-Springfield area.

Since opening his doors in 1977, Dr Dow and his staff have focused on providing his patients with quality comprehensive care tailored to fit their individual needs.
