Yet the visitors should have gone ahead in the 34th minute when Ian Evatt pulled over Zavon Hines in the area, but the striker dragged his penalty yards wide.
Chesterfield were reduced to 10 men three minutes later when Hird tripped Rhys Murphy on the edge of the box.
But Chesterfield were ahead four minutes into the second half when Brian Saah handled a goalbound shot and Richards dispatched the penalty, only for Ogogo to level with a stunning shot from the edge of the area in the 58th minute.
Lewington made another fine save from a Richards header but Dagenham almost won it when Murphy hit a post late on.
