More About Dr. Bastian
Dr. Bastian received numerous awards and accolades for his performance throughout school including his induction to the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Dental Society, Earl C. Maston Scholarship for Excellence in Operative Dentistry, as well as the WSDA Presidential Scholarship. He then continued his education, specializing in orthodontics at the UW and earning his Master of Science in Dentistry, and certificate in Orthodontics. His research focused on athletic mouthguards for the orthodontic patient. Dr. Bastian also has extensive training in clear braces, Damon System®, Invisalign®, TAD’s (temporary anchorage device), and Laser gingival surgery. He is passionate about learning, constantly seeking ways to improve his patient’s experiences with faster, more comfortable, and more reliable orthodontic therapy.
Outside of his life at Sullivan Orthodontics, Dr. Bastian has three of the sweetest kids and the greatest wife imaginable. He loves playing pickelball and swinging the golf clubs with his two oldest, Mr. Wilson and Mads (Madison). His youngest, Annabelle (Anna, Banna, Banjo, Angie, Annalita, and self-proclaimed Mini-Whack) is his true sidekick and is often swinging from his neck. As a UW Husky through and through, Dr. B thought it necessary to add another member to the family, their Siberian Husky pup, Masha, who is fluffy beyond control. He loves to spend his free time out in the yard striving for the greenest “crabgrass-free” yard, you will also see him at the Mill Creek YMCA shooting hoops. Sometimes, he can be found watching Filipino Soap Operas to freshen up on his Tagalog which he is fluent in after living in Manila for two years. If it’s warm and sunny out, you’re guaranteed to find the Bastian family in the water at Lake Stevens. Dr. Bastian’s family is his life and his true happiness is the relationships he has with the many amazing members of the Mill Creek community.
