Teaching kids to brush their teeth

Some dental tips from ONU HealthWise Pharmacy

It's National Children’s Dental Health Month. That means it's the perfect time to make sure your little ones have the skills they need to maintain healthy teeth for life.

Frigid temperatures can be dangerous without the proper precautions. The colder it gets outside, the more energy your body needs to remain warm.
