Dr. Richard Downing
Dr. Downing is a 2001 graduate of the University of Washington School of Dentistry and owned practices in Shelton, Tumwater, and Chehalis, Washington. During his time in Shelton/Chehalis, he played an instrumental role in establishing a clinic that provides free dental services to the residents of Mason County. For ten consecutive years, he also sponsored a free day of dentistry in his office, seeing an average of over 100 patients and performing free dental services for the local community.
Dr. Downing grew up in Walla Walla, Washington. Having worked on a long-liner fishing boat in Alaska, as a roofer on the Kingdome project, and as a general construction laborer, Dr. Downing understands the value of a hard day’s work. Dr. Downing’s priority is to offer world-class service that is technologically advanced, comfortable, and value conscience.
Dr. Downing cherishes spending time with his wife (Michelle) and three young children (7-year-old Archer, 10-year-old Forrest, and 14-year-old Hunter). They enjoy the Cub Scouts, camping, hiking, fishing, and traveling.
