Use datenum(). From the help:
format long
t = [datetime('now');datetime('tomorrow')]
DateNumber = datenum(t)
t =
07-Jan-2016 15:42:14
08-Jan-2016 00:00:00
DateNumber =
1.0e+05 *

You can make the tick marks whatever list of strings you want:
ax = gca;
ax.XTickLabel = yourCellArrayOfTimeStrings;
Example from the help:
ax.XTickLabel = {'-3\pi','-2\pi','-\pi','0','\pi','2\pi','3\pi'};
