How to Set Up Your Own Dental YouTube Channel
 - January 11th, 2023

As a dentist, YouTube offers you an incredible opportunity to share your expertise and advice with the world through its platform. You can create content that will provide valuable information to potential patients and build trust in what you offer. 

Setting up your own dental YouTube channel may seem daunting at first, but it doesn’t have to be! This blog post will provide actionable steps on creating an effective and lasting dental-focused presence on YouTube – so you can start taking advantage of this powerful platform today.

Follow these six simple steps to set up your dental YouTube channel:

  1. Go to and click “Sign In.”
  2. Log in using the Google account you want your channel to be tied to.
  3. Then, go to your “settings” by clicking on your profile icon located at the top right corner of the screen and select “Create a channel.” 
  4. Next, the option to create a personal or business-related channel will pop up. For small businesses, it is recommended to choose the “Use custom name” option.
  5. After that, you must name your channel. Keep in mind, when you create a new name for your channel, it will also create a new Google sub-account with its own settings and user history, which can be managed from your main Google settings (it’s nothing to worry about).
  6. Last but not least, you must customize your dental YouTube channel. You can do this by uploading a profile picture and description of your channel, and adding links to your dental website, Instagram and Twitter accounts.     

Most importantly, if you create your own YouTube channel, you can share the videos on your dental website and social media accounts. Best of all, since YouTube is owned by Google, it helps with search engine optimization.    

Dental Entrepreneurship and Finding Your Niche

One of the reasons dental YouTube channels have the ability to shoot to success is because they speak about a niche topic. 

But even if you practice general dentistry instead of specializing in orthodontics, oral surgery, or some other specialty, every dentist has their own unique perspective and strengths.
