About Dr. Laura Jacox – Orthodontist in Chapel Hill & Pittsboro, NC

dr laura jacox

Board-Certified Orthodontist

Dr. Laura Jacox, DMD, Ph.D., joined the practice of Dr. Tammy R. Severt on July 1, 2019. Dr. Jacox brings her warmth, caring nature, and enthusiasm for creating beautiful smiles, as well as her passion for the science behind orthodontics, to the team.

Dr. Jacox grew up in the Midwest, where she developed a love of the outdoors, sweet corn, live music, and the lakefront. For college, she relocated to Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she attended MIT. While in college, she played violin in the orchestra and met her future husband, Ilan, on a freshman year pre-orientation sailing trip.

Dr. Jacox then attended the Harvard School of Dental Medicine in pursuit of her Doctorate of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) as well as her Ph.D. While in dental school, Dr. Jacox fell in love with orthodontics – the patient care, the problem solving, and the power of creating beautiful smiles. After graduating top of her class, Dr. Jacox focused her clinical practice on facial development and smile esthetics.

She pursued a residency in the world-renowned Department of Orthodontics at the UNC School of Dentistry, where she was recognized with the UNC Graduate School Master’s Merit Fellowship. Dr. Jacox will continue as part-time faculty at UNC.

Away From the Office

In her free time, Dr. Jacox loves trail running, traveling, and playing violin in the Chapel Hill Philharmonic and Durham Symphony. When she’s not caring for patients, you can find her gardening at home with her husband and her 3-legged cat, Charlie.

Dr. Severt is certain that you will find Dr. Jacox as talented and brilliant as she does and looks forward to you meeting Dr. Jacox personally. Dr. Severt and Dr. Jacox work closely together to ensure that you receive the best orthodontic treatment and experience they can provide.
