U.S. Army Sgt. Shelby Snow applies sutures to a Nicaraguan woman after having several tooth extractions during a Joint Task Force-Bravo-led Medical Readiness Training Exercise in Alamikamba, Nicaragua, May 18, 2016. The dental services team saw a total of 135 patients, most of whom required more than one extraction. Many residents of Alamikamba suffer from decaying teeth due to the bad water conditions and lack of dental care in the area. (U.S. Army photo by Maria Pinel)
