Tooth Fairy Now Pays $4.66 per Tooth

The Tooth Fairy must be doing something important with all those teeth.  From a business standpoint, I don't see how she's making a profit anymore . . .

According to Delta Dental’s 13th annual Tooth Fairy survey the Tooth Fairy paid an average of $4.66 per tooth last year, which is an all-time high. 

That's up 19% from 2015, when it was $3.91 per tooth.  And the price for a FIRST tooth hit $5.72.

If you do the math, that means she paid out just over $290 MILLION for teeth last year. 

Kids in the western part of the U.S. got the biggest payouts last year at $5.96 per tooth.  Kids in the Northeast got $5.08 . . . kids in the South got $4.57 . . . and kids in the Midwest averaged $4.04 per tooth. 

48% of parents said they make their kids save their Tooth Fairy money . . . another 48% let them spend it . . . and 3% said it gets donated to charity.
