Why Dentists need a YouTube Channel

If you haven’t already, it’s time to set up a YouTube channel for your dental practice. You need a Google account to get started. Once you have your account set up, you can start adding videos right away. It may take a few weeks to get it verified before you can activate it.

1. Make videos yourself and your team answering frequent questions and FAQ’s that you get regularly.

All you need to get started making your own videos is a cell phone and a $20 tripod that you can get on amazon. I use Fiverr for a quick $5 editing hack. Feel free to buzz me and I can send you the links of the equipment and team I use.

2. Ask patients to share videos
Patient videos and testimonials are another great type of video to add to your YouTube channel. You can ask patients to send in video testimonials, for example, where patients talk about a treatment they received at your practice or why they like you as a dentist.
Patient videos are another great type of video to add to your YouTube channel.

3. “How-to” videos
This is a very popular type of video people like to watch on YouTube. You can do how-to videos for any type of dental-related topic, even something really basic like brushing or flossing or home care for various procedures.

4. Answering patient questions
This is a simple video where you just talk to the camera for a couple minutes to answer your most popular questions and concerns from patients.

Conclusion
YouTube videos will help any dentist build a following to expand their online marketing reach. This type of content is also great to share on other social media networks and can be posted to your website as well. Videos will also help your SEO
