Dentists can apply for YouTube features that identify them as licensed health care professionals

In an effort to better highlight trusted health information for consumers, YouTube is expanding its health product features to channels hosted by licensed health care professionals.

The features include panels that appear below videos to identify them as coming from a licensed health care professional and content shelves that highlight videos from trusted sources when users search for information on a health topic.

YouTube previously offered these features only to organizations such as educational institutions, public health departments, hospitals and government entities, but licensed health care professionals can apply online at health.youtube to make their channels eligible for the features too.

Applicants must provide proof of their license; follow best practices for health information sharing as set out by the Council of Medical Specialty Societies, National Academy of Medicine and World Health Organization; and have a channel in good standing on YouTube. YouTube will verify the licenses of applying health care professionals and review their channels against these guidelines.

"Effective communication is at the heart of improving people's health, and we're excited for this next phase in our work to connect people with highly authoritative health information that is both evidence-based and culturally relevant," YouTube Health global head Garth Graham, M.D., said in a blog post announcing the expansion.

 

Below is the video of our GKAS Event in May
at the Bayview Ave. School in Freeport

  • GKAS 2022 at the Bayview Ave. School Video Our 2022 GKAS event was held at the Bayview Ave. School of Arts & Science in Freeport, NY. This was our first "in-school" event in the 19 year history of our program as well as the first time we did a combined indoor and outdoor event. The 550 students there received free dental exams, fluoride treatments, sealants, oral hygiene instructions and nutrition education by our 100 volunteers. The Lion’s Club of Long Beach also provided free eye exams. We thank our wonderful Volunteers as well as Dr. Mary Garguilo, Principal of the Bayview Ave. School, Mr. Stanley Bergman, CEO of Henry Schein, Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine, Northwell Health, the New York State Dental Foundation, Sports Depot, The Long Beach Lion's Club, Fidelis Care, Liberty Dental, and Vivo Entertainment for their help in making this day possible as well as Michael Krien of Patkin Photography for putting together this wonderful video.
