Seeking Teachers for COMA Malayalam Class

For the past several years, COMA has been organizing Malayalam classes for our kids. Over the years, we have witnessed a tremendous increase in enrollment. Today, there are 30 kids attending the Malayalam classes each week. The classes are taught by a group of dedicated volunteer teachers – Veda, Prahalad, Priya, Madhu and Venu uncle. To support the volunteer teachers, COMA is looking for volunteers who can assist with teaching as a substitute. Classes are held weekly on Sundays from 11 AM to 12 noon at Lazelle Woods Community Center, 8140 Sancus Blvd., Westerville, OH.. There is no prerequisite or previous teaching experience that is required for this position. The person should be able to read, write and speak fluently in Malayalam. The substitute is not required to teach every week but will work with the current teachers on a flexible schedule depending on the needs.

If you are interested, please let us know at This is a great opportunity to give back to your COMA community and enjoy time with the kids.

Sponsor Corner: Trio Orthodontics

It is common practice to visit your dentist every six months for a cleaning to prevent the build up of plaque and check the overall dental health for children and adults. However, many are unaware that the American Academy of Orthodontics recommends the first visit to the orthodontist at age 7. Why so early? Aren’t braces for middle school aged children?

Around age 7 is the ideal time to view and evaluate any current or future concerns because the jaw is growing! Issues related to the growth of the jaw and structure of the bite can be caught and more easily corrected because the bone and muscle in the mouth is used to movement and change at this age. Therefore, treatment at this time could save your child from awkward appliances in their teen years and shorten the length of treatment time.

What can you do? Bring your child in for a consultation! Consultations at most orthodontic offices, including ours, are completely free. The orthodontist will evaluate your child at this appointment and let you know if treatment is recommended. For some children, no treatment is necessary. However, if treatment is recommended, your child in the 7-9 age range will be in what is called “Phase 1 treatment.” Phase 1 is early treatment which can shorten the time for “Phase 2” after the mouth finishes growing when children are in their teen years.

With multiple locations throughout Central Ohio, you and your family are sure to find the comfort, convenience and level of service that Trio Orthodontics has become known for. You can visit our web site at for a location near you. Trio will be going through a name change in the next couple of months to Smile Doctors Braces. However, the locations, doctors and teams will all remain unchanged. We offer braces and Invisalign for children, teens and adults. We would love to serve you and your family!
