My name is 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 to our country, I purchased a dental practice, where I quickly learned that there was much more to running a successful practice than merely being a good clinician. My business focus turned 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, helping them to control their costs and giving them the reassurance that they were getting a fair pricing while bringing secure technology that reduces the risk of credit card processing for health care offices. My goal is to remove these stresses so health care professionals can return their focus to what is truly important; caring for their patients.
