If this problem only appeared this year, I would think that the hard winter is probably the culprit. give the tree plenty of TLC, and see what happens next year. If branches are still bard, it might be time for a bit of pruning to see how that affects the tree. Effects of a bad winter may take 2 or 3 years to go away. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/dogwood/trimming-dogwood-trees.htm
