According to Delta Dental’s 13th annual tooth fairy survey, the average cash payout for a childhood tooth has soared to an all-time high of $4.66, up 75 cents from 2015. 

For real?  When I was a kid I remember there being loose change under my pillow for each tooth that came out.  So the average payout from the Tooth Fairy these days is $4.66 - wow!  

Happy National Tooth Fairy Day

How much do you believe is an appropriate amount for the Tooth Fairy to leave?

The older I get the more cavities I seem to have!  Don't forget to brush your teeth kiddos!
