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


The office will be closed for New Year’s from 5:00PM on December 28 thru 8:00AM January 2.

For emergencies, please call the office and speak with our answering service.

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.

Great care as always

5 stars Customer since 1975

She was professional, nice and courteous. She was careful taking x-rays since I have extra bone in the bottom of my mouth. She tried to make it as painless and quick/effecient as possible.

Kendra is an excellent hygienist. She cleaned my teeth very well. Also very nice and made just enough conversation. Dr. Richards is as pleasant and thorough as always during exam. I am grateful to have found your practice. I have already recommended to new neighbors.
