Tooth fairies reimburse an average of $4 per tooth

I’ve got a seven-year-old who’s about to lose a tooth — it’s just a couple of good wiggles and a twist or two away from coming out. And when it does, I feel pretty safe in guessing that she’s going to get about a buck under her pillow.

Turns out, tooth fairies at other houses are a bit more fast and loose with the cash.

A survey by dental insurance company Delta Dental says the national average for American kids is $4.36.

Not in my house, I’ll tell you that.
