About Dr. Michael Kunkel

Dr. Michael Kunkel developed a passion for helping others and knew he wanted to be involved in health care from an early age. While originally from Rochester, MN, he first came to Colorado to attend University of Colorado, Boulder and earned his bachelor’s degree in Molecular Biology. He returned to his home state to complete his dental degree at the University of Minnesota and then completed his residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery at Indiana University Medical Center.

While earning his undergraduate degree in Boulder, Dr. Kunkel met his wife and learned to love all that Colorado has to offer. He began practicing oral and maxillofacial surgery in Indianapolis following training, but it was always his plan to return to Colorado to be near friends and family and was blessed with the opportunity to do so here in Colorado Springs in 2013.

Dr. Kunkel’s goal is to create an office where the patient’s outcome and satisfaction are the top priority and develop the most highly coordinated oral and maxillofacial surgery facility in all of El Paso County. Not only does this mean providing superior clinical treatment to all of his patients but also assembling a team who places the patient at the center of everything that they do. His gentle and compassionate approach to oral surgery ensures that patients are comfortable throughout their procedure.

In his spare time, Dr. Kunkel enjoys spending time with his wife, Chelsea, and his son, Jamison. True to his love for Colorado, Dr. Kunkel spends much of his time outdoors exercising and playing sports. He is also an avid movie enthusiast, has a passion for music, and enjoys caring for an impressive collection of fish in his saltwater aquarium.

Hello. My name's Diana; I’m from Monument, Colorado. I had an impacted wisdom tooth; this infection grew and grew. By the time I went to the emergency room, the infection had moved towards half my face and moving towards my neck. The ER doctors, they called in an oral surgeon who happened to be on call which I was very fortunate that that doctor was Dr. Kunkel. Dr. Kunkel checked on me every day and made sure that the antibiotics were the right ones to work for the infection that I had. The whole time, I felt I was in excellent hands, and he totally put me at ease through this whole procedure. I would recommend Dr. Kunkel and his staff to anyone.

My first name is Rockey Bell; I’m from Colorado Springs, Colorado. I had this big lump inside my mouth, and I wasn’t really sure what it was. It was a little painful, so I came here to see what they could do with that nasty-looking thing. I was very nervous because I had thought maybe it might be cancer, or I really didn’t know what it was. Dr. Kunkel is a very proficient doctor. He’s very intelligent, and he talks to you like you’re human. I think the staff are amazing. They’ve helped me with every issue I’ve had. They made me feel comfortable. I would recommend anybody from Colorado Springs, Monument, Falcon to Dr. Kunkel.

I’m Andrea Brown, and I’m from Colorado Spring, Colorado. I came to Pikes Peak Oral Surgery because I had an abscessed tooth that was getting infected. Dr. Kunkel did an extraordinary job in treating me, in diagnosing me, and I feel real comfortable that I’m on the road to recovery right now. The staff at Dr. Kunkel’s office is just wonderful. I bring them treats. They are so sweet. They are terrific. It’s a real nice, friendly, tight-knit group. If I were to recommend an oral surgeon to any of my friends in Peregrine or Briargate, I would definitely recommend Dr. Kunkel. I’ve been thrilled with his care.

Why us

My name is Chris Mussone, DDS, and my practice name is my name: Christopher Mussone, DDS, Family Dentist. I refer to Dr. Kunkel because I have a lot of confidence in him. I feel that when I send patients his way that they're going to come back happy. I send patients over here most often for implants and extractions. So when I send Dr. Kunkel patients, they’re patients that I see generally for life. So, I trust him to treat my patients the way I would want them treated in my office. When my patients come back to me, they generally feel that Dr. Kunkel’s office has treated them well and that he has followed up in an appropriate manner, and they’ve had no problems.
