Dr. Bastian and his wife are true natives of the Mill Creek area and feel blessed to be able to work and raise their children in the community they love.

Outside of his life at Sullivan Bastian Orthodontics, Dr. Bastian has four of the sweetest kids and the greatest wife imaginable. He loves playing pickleball, tennis, and swinging the golf clubs with his two oldest, Mr. Wilson and Mads (Madison). His younger girls, Annabelle (AnnaBana) and Eden are his true sidekicks and are often found swinging around his neck. As a UW Husky through and through, Dr. B thought it necessary to get not one, but TWO Siberian husky pups Masha and Misha. He loves exploring nature with his kiddos, shooting hoops outside, or riding dirt bikes around the yard. 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. 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.
