Something to chew on
Insurer Delta Dental has tracked how much money kids find under their pillow since 1998. The per tooth average has climbed fairly consistently over the years (it was just $1.30 in ’98, and $1.54 in 2002), although 2010’s rate seemed to undergo a market correction. More than 100,000 Delta Dental subscribers are asked to participate in Tooth Fairy polling. The Dow Jones industrial average is also tracked here.
