Have you seen the latest data out of Delta Dental regarding the Tooth Fairy?
“Tooth Fairy prices around the country are taking a hit on parents’ pockets. Every year since 1998, dental insurance provider Delta Dental has tracked the average price of a single tooth across the United States. Their data shows a 379% surge in the average amount of money the Tooth Fairy leaves under children’s pillows from its beginnings, going from $1.30 in 1998 to $6.23 in 2023.
The price has gone up a bit from last year as well. In 2022, kids were getting an average of $5.36, indicating a 16% increase since last year.”
Here at Ehrenman & Khan Pediatric Dentistry, we hear some of our patients can receive anywhere from $2 to $20 per tooth and (just in the last year) have heard several parents say that the tooth fairy has left Roblox money and a note instead of cash!
