Great place! I recently had a gum graft surgery at Altura Periodontics. Dr. Arguello was amazing, as well as his assistant, Daniel! They made me feel very comfortable, and were extremely friendly in answering any of my questions. I was very impressed that Dr. Arguello even gave me a phone call the night after to check in. I would absolutely recommend this place!
