How can I remove Unity's Max/Min/Close buttons on the top left of the Dash?

The Ubuntu Tweak application can do that for you. You'll find it at:

You find what you want in the Tweaks tab under "Window Manager Settings". Within "Window Titlbar Button Layout" check the Customize box and then uncheck the boxes in "Enable control:".
