WELCOME TO OUR PRACTICE

Dr. Julie Mol established a patient-centered practice in 2003 with a strong commitment to providing the highest standard of personalized orthodontic care for the entire family in a kind and caring way.  The circular open design of the Sutton Station office reflects Dr. Mol’s vision of making a collaborative circle comprising patient, orthodontist, staff, family, and referring doctor. 

Dr. Mol believes that developing a trusting and genuine human connection is as significant as the application of advanced technologies and clinical skills in achieving successful outcomes. The Mol Orthodontics team shares her emphasis on patient care and strives to make every visit an enjoyable experience.

Dr. Mol has wholeheartedly invited Dr. Christina Jackson to join the practice in 2017 as an associate doctor.  Dr. Jackson’s vibrant energy and kindness will further strengthen the vision of individualized, attentive, and gentle care for patients.

This spring, Mol Orthodontics welcomed Dr. Rick Uhlir to our Southern Village location. Dr. Uhlir’s thoughtful and dedicated care was a wonderful fit, and it has evolved into Dr. Uhlir taking ownership of the Chapel Hill office. A larger clinic space is being built next to our current suite, which will offer expanded hours for your convenience.

The new office will operate as Southern Village Orthodontics. Mol Orthodontics staff and Dr. Julie Mol will continue to work with Dr. Uhlir and treat patients in Southern Village, caring for you with the same high standards.  Dr. Jackson and Dr. Mol will continue to see patients at the Sutton Station office. Communication, quality of care, and excellent service will remain our mission.

 
 

 

“I am committed to understanding each of my patients as unique individuals with specific goals in mind.  Together, we can achieve that confident smile.  A beautiful smile is more than straight teeth.   It is the radiance in the eyes and the boldness in the heart knowing that you look as good as you feel.  Orthodontics combines my love for people, creativity, curiosity, and joy of making people smile."

— Dr. Julie Mol

“I am thrilled to join Dr. Mol’s caring team and to be providing excellent orthodontic treatment to our community.  Dr. Mol has a wonderful reputation in the community of patients and doctors as a hands-on, caring, and effective orthodontist.  I also value strong relationships with patients and their families, and truly care for the comfort of my patients as I would for my own family.”

— Dr. Christina Jackson
