    You are looking at a typical flower from the rose family.

    It could be a flowering pear maybe pyrus calleryana. The petals are in 5's surrounding many male parts and several fused females in the centre.

    looks like a white flowering crab apple (Malus sp.). don't think it is a pear, and definitely not a dogwood.

    It don't make any type of fruit. It flowers up with the white flowers. Then after the flowers fall the tree stays just green all summer.
