How Much Does The Tooth Fairy Pay Per Tooth For Your Child?

Kids who lose their teeth aren’t raking in the dough the way they used to. According The Original Tooth Fairy Poll conducted by Delta Dental, for the second year in a row the Tooth Fairy has been tightening its belt, with kids getting an average of $3.70 per tooth in 2018, down 43-cents from last year. 

Of course, that’s just the national average, with some parents saying the Tooth Fairy has actually been quite generous. In fact, 37% of parent say they give their child at least $5 or more. And if it’s a first tooth, well, that brings more dough too, with the average amount for a first tooth being $4.96, $1.26 over the average lost tooth.

And a child’s gift does vary depending on location. It seems the Tooth Fairy is most generous in the West, paying an average of $4.19 which is actually 66-cents less than last year, followed by the South at $3.91 cents a tooth, the Northeast at $3.75 a tooth and the Midwest, at $2.97 a tooth.
