Damdy obtained her undergraduate degree from George Mason University and followed that with her D.D.S. degree from the Medical College of Virginia. Quite an achievement, considering she didn’t learn to speak English until she moved here from her native Laos at the age of 16. Dr. Richards joined Konikoff Dentistry in 1997 and loves working with – as she describes it – a great group of talented people in a friendly, rewarding environment.
Dr. Richards gets tremendous satisfaction from working to improve her patients’ smiles and, as a result, their confidence and happiness. In that same spirit, Damdy enjoys cooking and entertaining, and spending time with her husband and their two boys.
Dr. Richards is a member of the Virginia Beach Dental Association and the Virginia Beach Professional Women’s Club. Dr. Richards also specializes in Invisalign® treatment.
“In addition to my work as your dentist I spend my free time volunteering with the local Virginia Beach public school system, with access partnership to Hampton Roads and with local nursing home/rehabilitations centers. I also love to cook and entertain my friends and family.”

Our patients leave smiling
Dr. Richards and her staff provide the best dental experience you can ever encounter. I actually look forward to going to the dentist now, how weird is that, haha? :-) Keep up the great work.
Konikoff dentistry is awesome! Especially because they have the BEST dental hygienist in the world – Chrissy D.! They all do a great job, very professional, and really friendly. Way to go, Konikoff! :)
Office is clean and inviting. Front desk staff are welcoming and willing to answer any questions. I had Dr. Lanigan for a cleaning and 2 crowns. He did an amazing job! I felt absolutely nothing and he was informative and charming. I highly recommend this office.
Dr. McCarty and his team (Erin and Kelly) are the best people I have ever had interaction with at a dentist office. They are friendly, caring and truly make you feel at ease. They go out of their way to make sure you feel safe and secure. Very understanding and empathetic, I feel lucky to have found them! If you need a dentist or have anxiety about seeing a dentist, Dr. McCarty is the one to see.…
As always received VIP treatment.
Always enjoy my experiences at Konikoff. Friendly staff and I love catching up with my hygienist every 6 months with what’s going on in our lives.
Brook and Dr Maclin are just great. Very personable and sincere. They make my visits very pleasant.
My dental hygienist, Joan, was friendly and thorough and my teeth feel fabulous!
All of the staff, from my initial phone call, to checking in, to my hygienist Tracey and Dr. Maclin were professional, helpful, and warm. They were generous and kind when my childcare for my first appointment fell through and I had to cancel and reschedule at the last minute. I’m grateful that they still accept the military dental insurance; it’s easy to say “we support the milit…
Katie and Dr. Lanigan did a Great Job!
Everyone at Konikoff is always helpful and professional. Chrissy, my hygienist, is awesome!
Everyone in this office General Booth Blvd, are the best. I have been under the care of Dr. Richards since this location opened. I am thankful to Sarah Green, and all the other office personal, and hygienist, as well as Dr. Richards for always going the extra mile for my dental care.
Friendly and trustworthy. I’ve been really happy there.
Both the hygienist and the dentist were awesome. Explained everything, both were very gentle, professional and pleasant! Wonderful!
Great patient service as usual. On time appt response. Great care. See you in 6 mths.
Great practice. Chrissy cleans my teeth, Dr McCarty drills, if needed. Everyone in there is wonderful, kind, comforting. Great experience.
Well I came in hoping I just had a lose crown but it ended up being a broken filling. Dr. McCarty was able to get me fixed up, as painless and comfortably as possible. He always does a fantastic job and truly cares for his patients! Excellent work again!!!!
Great Staff! Super friendly and professional will definitely return.
Doctor Richards always does great work.
I have been using Konikoff Dentistry for years. Dr. McCarty and his assistant Kelly are two of the best dental professionals I have ever been fortunate enough to meet. The care at Konikoff is like none other. They are prompt, professional, efficient, and extremely friendly. Everyone from the front desk personnel to the check out personnel make the entire experience seem like visiting good friends…
It was my daughters first visit as a three-year-old and the dental hygienist was wonderful with her, explained everything and kid friendly terms and made it a fun, comfortable experience for her!
The General Booth office always provides excellent service and Dr. McCarty is wonderful. I’ve never felt like I’ve been asked to pay too much or waited long past my appointment time.
I took my family here yesterday and everyone was so kind. I had Joan clean my teeth and she was AMAZING. She was such a warm and kind person and answered all the questions I had. My teeth feel so clean. My.otger 3 kids all had different hygienists and I cannot remember their names but my kids loved them. We had a great experience there. Thank you.
I have been going to this Konikoff office since I was a little girl. They always take wonderful care of you, and make sure you’re comfortable . When you go here they treat you like you’re family.
Dr Lanigan is the best. Makes my visit to the dentist a hole lot better. Everyone is so polite and professional. When I have an emergency they get me in with Dr Lanigan asap as I won’t see anyone else. Thanks to his professionalism I am seeing dentist more than ever before. Thank you Dr Lanigan for helping me save my teeth.
I love my dentist Dr.Mcalin she is awesome…and my hygentist Jerri they are superstars!
I think Dr McCarty is a kind, caring dentist. He regularly took the time to ask if I was OK or in any pain during my (difficult) cracked molar extraction, and when necessary provided extra “numbing” and/or lidocaine as needed. He thoroughly explained the procedure before he got started, and the assistant explained after care both before AND after the procedure. I will definitely go her…

Dr. McCarty is the best dentist I have ever seen! He is a dental wizard! The work he has done on my son and daughters teeth is perfection, not to mention everything he has done for me. He is excellent at what he does, and I can’t thank him and his team for the patience they have when I walk into the office. I have a little anxiety (ok a lot) but he does everything to make sure I am calm and…
As always very professional service and friendly personnel.
My family and I have been patients for years and Its always a pleasure to be taken care of by the entire staff.
Best Dentist I have ever been to. Friendly & caring for my needs
This practice provides that small town neighborhood feel. As a loyal Konikoff patient for over 20 years, this practice continues to provide me and my family of four an exceptional experience with their courteous, professional, and compassionate staff.
The staff are great!!!
I’ve been going to this practice for I think 4+ years now and absolutely recommend them! Dr. McCarty is the best! I’m always treated with respect and care. My dental hygienist is Kelly and she’s amazing! I’m never in pain after a cleaning like some places I’ve been. We have a good chat and laugh a lot! Thank you all for a positive experience!!
Everything was explained to me beforehand. The assistant and the dentist were very friendly and gentle. The doctor gave me my injection and I barely felt anything. Very pleased!
Great care by Dr. Maclin
Professional cleaning services provided in a clean and welcoming environment.
Joan, my hygienist, was excellent as always! She is professional, affable and empathetic to patient needs. Joan always explains everything she does which tends to relax nervous patients.
