HUBBARD, Ohio (WKBN) – Braydich Dental in Hubbard is launching its 19th annual Smiles for Charity fundraiser.

The fundraiser, which is from March 1 until June 30, will raise money for Mina’s Foster Closet, a local nonprofit organization that focuses on providing items for foster families in the area.

Braydich Dental will raise money by selling all-in-one-teeth-whitening kits for $100, which include custom trays and whitening gel for teeth. All proceeds will go to Mina’s Foster Closet.

“This is an opportunity for people to donate to a children’s charity and get their teeth whitened,” said Mark Braydich. “It’s a win-win, and you don’t have to be a patient to get the teeth whitening kit. So, you can have a brighter smile and help Mina’s Foster Closet at the same time.”

For 18 years Braydich Dental has provided support for local charities.

“It’s important to impact children, because children are our future. And I know that — losing a father at 15 and a brother at 1 — it’s pressed upon us at a very early age to go ahead and take care of those who are less fortunate,” said Dr. Rudy Braydich, president of Braydich Dental.
