That would happen automatically.
x = datenum('Jan 17, 2016') : datenum('Jan 23, 2016');
y = mod(x, 4);
plot(x,y);
If the difficulty is with it automatically putting the label in scientific notation then:
In R2015a or later (might need R2015b):
ax = gca;
ax.XAxis.Exponent = 0;
In earlier versions (including R2014b, which did not have the Numeric Ruler properties yet even though it was HG2):
set(gca,'XTickLabel', cellstr( num2str( reshape(get(gca,'XTick'),[],1) ) ) )

Could you give some sample data? I get the impression that your T might contain date vectors, something like an array of [2016 12 14 19 48 18.5665000000008] ?
