I guess the Tooth Fairy’s finances haven’t been hit too hard by the pandemic. Because payouts just hit an all-time HIGH.
Delta Dental’s 23rd annual Tooth Fairy Poll just came out. And they found the national average is now $4.70 per tooth.
That’s up 67 cents from last year, and four cents higher than the old record from 2017.
Kids in the Northeast get the biggest payouts at $5.72 per tooth. Kids out West are next at $5.54 . . . then the South at $4.45 . . . and the Midwest is lower at just $3.66 a tooth.
The survey’s been done every year since 1998, when the average price per tooth was just $1.30.
