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.

I forgot about my appointment, received a call from the office, and they were still able to get me in that night. I’m sorry for the delay and appreciate that I was still able to have the appointment. Great service and friendly staff. Thanks so much!!!

My experience with the Hygienist and the Dentist was very good as always. I would recommend some changes be made to the waiting room environment.

My experience with the Hygienist and Dentist is always a positive one. One sincere recommendation is to change the environment in your waiting area. May I suggest some pleasant, relaxing, anxiety reducing, non- politically charged entertainment. Whether it's music, a family friendly seasonal movie, or an interesting/informative/educational tv program- any of those would be a major improvement. I am normally tense in medical offices and having to sit and listen to a bunch of loud opinionated women throw around a political agenda while claiming to be addressing a very serious subject- adds to the tension someone may already feel while sitting in a medical office. I would have hated being a man sitting in that waiting area or a woman who has had to live through the subject they were addressing while pursuing their personal political agenda. Visited my Endodontist today- excellent waiting room experience, as well as personnel- they would get a 10/10 as would your office with a better waiting room experience.
