|There are a lot of factors involved in flower production in dogwoods. Most of it is weather related. If you dogwood looks otherwise healthy, there's nothing to worry about. You may try feeding your tree this summer so it remains healthy and can develop flowers for next spring. Broadcast a 10-10-10 under the canopy and work it into the soil a few inches. As you water the tree the nutrients will trickle down with water to the roots. Good luck with your dogwood!
