Poll Reveals Tooth Fairy Welcomed By Most U.S. Homes


Delta Dental recently released findings from it’s annual Tooth Fairy poll that found the Tooth Fairy is welcomed into 81 percent of U.S. homes.

Additionally, the poll showed that 1 in 4 children even go to bed early on the night of the Tooth Fairy’s visit.

Another interesting finding is that the value of the average lost tooth has increased in the past year by 16%. It is now at a record high of $6.23 per tooth.

Overall, Delta Dental’s 2023 Original Tooth Fairy Poll® demonstrates how much of an impact the Tooth Fairy can have on families and how it encourages good oral hygiene habits from a young age.
