Welcome

Nestled in the heart of downtown Lititz, our dental practice has been serving the folks of Lancaster County for over 30 years.

Office Protocols for the Coronavirus

As of May 11, 2020 Governor Wolf has eased his restrictions on dentistry.  As a result, Dr Richards will reopen his office on June 1, 2020.  If you missed an appointment while we were closed, please call our office during normal business hours starting June 1, 2020 to reschedule.  As always,if you have an emergency please leave a message with the answering service and Dr. Richards will contact you.

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.

Your smile is one of your most important features. Dr. Richards and his staff are dedicated to not only keeping your smile bright but also keeping your teeth and gums healthy. There have been many studies done proving the importance of good oral hygiene and the effect this has on your overall health.  From your first visit we strive to provide a comprehensive and thorough exam, gathering information that is important not only to the health of your mouth but your whole body.

After reviewing your health history, we start by providing a gentle but thorough cleaning of your teeth, inspecting gums and taking x-rays if warranted.  The goal is to detect, deter, and prevent gum disease and tooth decay which can have far-reaching health implications.  If there is cause for concern, Dr. Richards will explain all options available to optimize your total health.
