Get To Know Our Leaders

Dr. Allmand

Co-Founder & COO

Dr. Zachary Allmand

Hi, I'm Dr. Zachary Allmand! I graduated from Indiana University Dental School in 2005.  Post-graduation, I served our country in the United States Air Force for 5 years, deploying to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.  After fulfilling my service, I purchased my first dental practice, where I quickly realized that there was much more to running a successful practice than merely being a good clinician.

Within the first year or so, I shifted my focus to overhead reduction in an attempt to control costs without sacrificing clinical excellence.  I quickly learned that there were many aspects of the business where doctors were being taken advantage of, one of the most evident being Credit Card Processing.  As I researched the true cost of merchant services, I realized that it could be done better with more transparency, security, and fair treatment for all offices no matter their volume.

I formed Apex Payment Solutions as a means to educate and assist my colleagues by helping them control their overhead costs, give them reassurance of fair pricing, and provide secure technology that reduces the risk of credit card processing. By providing these services we have helped over 500 dental practices take back control of their expenses and grow their profitability.

At Apex Payment Solutions, our goal is to remove these stresses, so health care professionals can return their focus to what is truly important; caring for their patients.   

Co-Founder & CEO

Jonathun Catapano

Jonathun is a determined entrepreneur who has predominantly worked in the banking industry as a commercial banker and investment advisor throughout his career. He has always prioritized customer service and providing value to his clients, setting himself apart from others in the financial sector.

In 2007, Jonathun met Zak, who had plans to open his own practice in 2016 and needed merchant services. Together, they recognized an opportunity to provide improved solutions for dentists and found a gap in the industry. With his proficiency in processing, customer service, and developing solutions to optimize office efficiency, Jonathun was confident he could make a difference.

As a result, they devoted significant effort to researching and creating a comprehensive solution tailored specifically for dentists, forming Apex. The company focuses on employee well-being and customer satisfaction, resulting in an employee-centric organization that offers exceptional products and services to clients. Combining their individual knowledge and expertise, they built a dental merchant services company that delivers unparalleled service and innovative solutions to the dental community.
