Dr. Chiann Fan Gibson – Mrs. United States 2005

If there was ever a question whether the American Dream still exists, Dr. Chiann Fan Gibson is proof that it is alive and well.  Her quote, “There are no limits to the goals you can attain, for your successes are as endless as your dreams,” is a snapshot of her amazing life.  Though she represented Illinois, “The Land Of Lincoln,” at the National Pageant, Chiann’s humble beginning began halfway around the world. 

Born in Tokyo, Japan, Chiann is the daughter of Taiwanese parents, who immigrated to America with less than $200, unable to speak English and three little girls all under the age of three. The family settled briefly in California, then moved to Houston Texas where Chiann spent most of her childhood as a true Texan. She moved to Seattle Washington to complete her senior year of high school as an honor student. With great appreciation, the family became naturalized citizens in 1986. 

Chiann attended the University of Washington, where in addition to obtaining her degree in Childhood Psychology, she was a 3 year cheerleader, cheering in both the Rose Bowl (Rose Bowl Parade) and the Japan Bowl in Tokyo.  Upon graduation, Chiann received a merit scholarship to Tufts School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts where she received her doctorate of Dentistry as well as excellence awards in Operative Dentistry and Prosthodontics.  The family’s “American Dream” didn’t end with Chiann.  Her twin sister Yu-Ping obtained her masters in International Finance from American University in Washington DC & her sister Chen received her Doctorate in Linguistics from Georgetown University in Washington DC. 

Chiann’s most prestigious award to date, in recognition for her work as a dentist and pageant participant, is from Mr. Donald J. Trump, real estate entrepreneur and owner of The Miss Universe Organization.  Chainn was awarded the honorary title of “Official Dentist Of The Miss Universe Pageant,” in 1998.  Chiann is no stranger to pageantry.  She is a former Washington State Junior Miss, Miss Washington USA, American Dream Calendar Girl, and Miss Hawaiian Tropic winner.  In 2003 Chiann was chosen to compete on ABC-TV’s modeling television show “Are You Hot.”

Because of her longtime involvement in pageants, both on stage and behind the scenes, Chiann knows the importance of a beautiful smile. She has been able to help other young women realize the benefits of a healthy smile. For the past 11 years Chiann has practiced General Dentistry, specializing in Cosmetic Dentistry and in Invisalign Orthodontia. She focuses on improving many smiles and finds great joy when people are overjoyed over their makeover. She has seen restored self-confidence in many because of an improved smile.  Chiann has also provided free dental care for underprivileged families through state assisted programs.  With her title of Mrs. United States 2005, Chiann hopes to be able to speak about the importance of a good education, health and wellness.

Chiann is married to Jim Gibson, an Emmy award winning TV Host and Entertainer. They have been married for 6 years and reside in Aurora, Illinois.  They are actively involved in numerous church, civic, private education and charitable organizations, including Fight For Children Inc., which has raised more than 40 million dollars for selected children’s charities over the past 16 years.

As Mrs. United States 2005, Dr. Gibson looks forward to her year of reign as she hopes to inspire many in their aspirations. “The American Dream is Alive and Well for those who dare to reach for it!”
