Tony Zakhem

Vice President

Tony was born and raised in a small village of 2000 people in North Lebanon, and by choice immigrated to the USA with very little financial means for better higher education and quality of life in general. Growing up as a recipient of others’ generosity, Tony has deep sense of giving back to the community and to underprivileged kids. Tony graduated from Texas State Technical Institute as a Dental Laboratory Technician and later earned the title Certified Dental Technician “CDT”. He joined Rocky Mountain Orthodontics in Sept of 1988 and has worked in all aspects of the business, ranging from traveling sales support to being named to the position of Chairman and CEO. Tony’s interest has always peaked with Product Development, and he was very involved in RMO’s product development efforts. Currently, Tony is the lead Independent Consultant and owner of Synergy Management. Self-proclaimed as “living the American Dream”, Tony believes that having the ability to give back brings deep feelings of joy.
