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.

Dr Richards rebuilt a broken filling ... one of several I needed over the years. He is excellent at doing this. Tooth and bite feel normal. No discomfort. Well done!
