Welcome

Nestled in the heart of downtown Lititz, our dental practice has been serving the folks of Lancaster County for over 20 years.

Dr. David Richards started practicing in Lititz in 1988, then at 12 S. Broad St. and moving to 2 S. Broad St. in 1993 where he had a little more room to grow. For those of you who grew up in Lititz, you will recognize this address as Doc Grosh’s old office.

Dr. Richards made some sweeping changes in 2007 and gave the “old office” a facelift and had an addition built to accommodate a growing practice. The new office boasts state-of-the-art technology with computers in every treatment room, intra-oral cameras and digital x-rays, which greatly decreases exposure to radiation.

While our technology has become more sophisticated our hometown appeal has remained unchanged.

Excellent visit as always! All the staff is friendly and inviting from the time you step into the door and greeted by the front desk, to the hygienist who is always caring and of course Dr. Richards who always treats you like family and somehow remembers those little things from your last conversation. You will consider yourself lucky to find a more caring group of professionals

For a dentist visit it was as good as can be expected.

5 stars Customer since 1961

Visit was outside the normal check-up and I had no problem getting into the office for an initial assessment and return for this visit to correct the problem. As always, the office staff and Dr. Richards were very friendly and courteous. Work was done professionally with concern expressed for my comfort. This is why our family continues with Dr. Richards.

From the moment I walked in the door until my visit was complete, I was treated warmly and professionally. I am very grateful for Dr Richards and his staff as my dental professionals. It is an added bonus to view the beautiful stone Lititz Mutual Insurance Building from the dental chair and hear their melodic bells! We are lucky to have Dr Richards in Lititz!
