Dr. Danice Nelsen Couch is a native Texan, who, as a child, was transplanted to the Northeast. After graduating from a Pennsylvania high school, she returned to the Lone Star State to attend Baylor University, where she pursued a Bachelor of Science in chemistry. A short three years later, Danice was accepted to the Baylor College of Dentistry. Graduating in 1984 with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, she has been in private practice ever since.

At just eight years old, Dr. Couch’s passion for a beautiful smile began after an accident that necessitated extensive dental work. Through this experience, she developed a deep, personal appreciation for the dental profession and decided that she too would become a dentist in order to help people by restoring their smiles.

Over the years, Dr. Couch has been active in the American Dental Association®, Academy of General Dentistry, Texas Dental Association, Dallas County Dental Society and the Academy of Gp Orthodontics. Danice also serves her community through volunteer work, partnering with a variety of philanthropic organizations including the Boy Scouts of America, Young Men’s Service League, National Charity League and the Miss Texas Organization. In her free time, Dr. Couch enjoys interior and fashion design, reading, traveling, theater and cheering on her favorite college teams, the Baylor Bears and Georgetown Hoyas. Outside of the office, Danice enjoys spending time with her family as an involved mother of her children.
