They have helped us increase the efficiency and growth of our office by helping us recognize areas of opportunity, utilizing the strength of our staff members, and by increasing communication and team-building within the entire office. Our entire team looks forward to visits from Practice Dynamics because it is always a positive opportunity for individual and team growth. I highly recommend Practice Dynamics to any office that is striving to take it to ‘the next level’.” – Tammy Wilson, North River Dental


Laci L. Phillips

Laci discovered at an early age her true passion for speaking and entertaining audiences. As a founding partner at Practice Dynamics she combines her knowledge of dentistry with her passion for teams to deliver customized coaching, workshops and speaking events throughout the country.

Laci began her road to coaching as a chairside assistant while going to college to pursue a dream of one day having her own talk show. While working her way to the business side of dentistry, she was fortunate to learn from top industry professionals. The experience gained on this journey gives her unique insight into the technology and business side of dentistry. The excitement of working in high tech offices, as well as, high-end cosmetic practices has instilled in her the passion and the knowledge to coach dental teams on their road to excellence.

Balancing coaching dental teams with her speaking career is a dream come true. Each time she takes the stage her passion for dentistry and the dental team comes to life in her words and the lessons she teaches.

Practice Dynamics specializes in coaching teams to reach their goals through balance driven success using systems, teams and technology.

"A large portion of meeting planning is about finding informative and inventive programs that attendees can take back to their practices and apply immediately to improve techniques and office efficiency.  Practice Dynamics takes an innovative and exciting approach to office systems learning that keeps the entire audience engaged.   Enhanced class room design encourages all attendees to become involved in their own learning process with the help of the Practice Dynamics instructors [Laci and Bonnie -- feel free to edit names].  With a diverse selection of necessary skill topics for the dental office environment.... from management systems to social media to insurance coding...  Practice Dynamics will deliver a creative and fun learning environment for the entire dental team!" - Nanette Tertel, Ohio Dental Association



Joseph Stith

With 3 decades of experience as a speaker, coach, and consultant, Joseph brings three additional specialties to the Practice Dynamics team.  1) Executive coaching, having completed Arbinger Institute Mastery Training and a member of the Arbinger Coaching Network, 2) The funeral service profession, where he’s been coaching managers and executives for 15 years, and 3) Joseph’s passion for coaching other coaches which expands an existing Practice Dynamics emphasis in peer leadership.

Joseph’s leadership experience began while serving in the United States Marine Corps, training Marine recruits as a Drill Instructor in 1982.  Taking his leadership training skills into the private sector, Joseph began working with dentists and doctors to build world class private practices that increased revenue by 35% in 6 months.  Recruited by Solutionreach in 2011 to assist in developing relationships with key opinion leaders, he created what is known as a “high-performance work team” that revolutionized team morale and productivity.  Joseph is thrilled to now join Practice Dynamics as one of the premier full-service consulting teams in the Unites States.

A southern California native together with his wife Vicki, they’ve called Utah home for more than 32 years.  He would love to tell you he enjoys backpacking, skiing, and outdoor adventures given where he lives, but he can’t.  His idea of camping is a backyard fire pit and sleeping in his own bed.  The Marine Corps really took its toll.
