Years in Dentistry: 30 years

I have a rich history of sales and sales management experience in the dental industry. As an entrepreneur, I started my own dental employment agency in the early ’90s servicing many dentists in the Long Island/Queens areas – I ran this successful agency for 8 years. I was then asked to join the first light-activated teeth whitening company to hit the dental landscape, called BriteSmile, and covered the entire Northeastern territory. In 2005, I joined Henry Schein as a Zone Technology Sales Manager covering the Northeast and most recently was a Field Sales Consultant working with dentists across Long Island. Throughout my 14 years with Henry Schein, I have built strong relationships with doctors and practice owners about technology, growing their practices and increasing profitability.  I am very excited to be part of the Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions team to help dentists in their transition phases (selling their practice, adding a partner or associate or helping the evaluation their practice for future goals).

I am a fitness enthusiast and love healthy cooking! I am a Breast Cancer Survivor and participate in Cycle For Survival each year (100% of the proceeds go to Memorial Sloan Kettering for rare cancer research).

After having a poor experience with another broker, I was referred to Linda Zalkin. I have always used Henry Schein for my supply needs but didn’t know they provided practice transition services. Linda was extremely professional and obtained top dollar for my practice. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. She found the perfect match for my practice. As anyone knows, one of the main concerns with a practice transition is how is this new person going to treat the staff and patients. Linda truly listened to my needs and found the right person.

Linda Zalkin is the consummate professional. Extremely knowledgeable with the marketplace and the nuances of dental practice sales and transitions. Linda was available to talk at any time, answered each and every question and addressed all concerns that I had. Having worked with Linda for years, as my sales rep, she knew my practice and its relative worth in the marketplace. She was able to secure for me the perfect buyer for my situation. My wife and I could NOT be happier. I would recommend Linda without any reservation!

I couldn’t have been happier with Linda Zalkin’s professionalism in helping me purchase my dental practice. Her knowledge and expertise with how to help a sale progress was very helpful in moving the process along. I have been recommending her to my colleagues and friends.

Linda Zalkin was my Transition Sales Consultant from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions. Linda was great at bringing qualified buyers, excellent at filtering the buyers for my style of practice, and most of all brought practitioners I felt comfortable transitioning my patients. Linda was professional, honest, and very capable. I was able to transition my practice and when it all concluded, everyone was happy with the result.

Linda Zalkin of Henry Schein Transition Solutions did a phenomenal job of marketing and selling my practice! This was probably the toughest year of any to sell a practice due to COVID. In fact, a deal we had that was close to closing in March 2020 fell through due to the mandated closures. But Linda remain undaunted and by the fall, not only was my practice sold, but she got full asking price as well! That speaks volumes about her abilities!

I want to thank Linda Zalkin for working so hard to complete the purchase of my practice in a timely manner. She was so helpful in coordinating all the moving parts of the process and got the job done. She was easy to talk to, easy to reach, and responsive to emails and texts always. Thank you!

Linda Zalkin was very efficient and effective in finding a buyer and getting the office sold. I’m very happy with the results and would recommend Henry Schein for anyone looking to sell their practice.

Linda Zalkin facilitated the sale of my practice several months ago. Both myself and the dentist buying the practice felt that she was genuinely interested in having both our interests in mind. She was instrumental in bringing our attorneys to agree to what we wanted to accomplish in the buy/sell agreement. Linda was the main person who was able to make it all happen in a timely fashion since both of us were working full time in different practices. She was a pleasure to work with in what was really a very emotional time. I highly recommend her to anyone who is considering the sale of their practice.

Linda Zalkin contacted me in late November about a special nearby local practice for sale, suggesting that it would be a perfect fit. I have known Linda since shortly after I established my practice from the ground up and she had been instrumental – as my Henry Schein Field Sales Consultant – in my growth and success. Linda now works in the Professional Practice Transitions division and it is a logical move for her as she has keen insights on the local market and she only wants to help sellers and buyers come to fair terms. We closed the deal in a few short weeks and both myself and the seller couldn’t be happier! I highly recommend Linda to any potential buyer or seller and I trust that she will be there from the beginning to the very end to ensure a smooth transition!
