Meet Our Team



Dr. Michael Unser


I am excited to offer you a superior dental experience. I listen to your opinions about your mouth and smile as well as your long-term goals. Then I custom design a treatment just for you.

My beautiful wife and I moved to Denver over 33 years ago to start my practice. We have two adult daughters and two fur kids. When I am not in the office; I enjoy reading, golfing and the occasional poker game.

My team and I keep our dentistry fresh by continually learning new procedures and techniques. Here at 20th Avenue Dentistry it’s our privilege to practice our profession.
