Poll: Tooth Fairy stingy in VA

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

The Tooth Fairy is holding out on Virginians, according to The Original Tooth Fairy Poll sponsored by Delta Dental.

The average payout per tooth for Virginia in 2013 was $2.60, below the national average of $3.60.

Parents reported their children getting an average of $4.47 for the first tooth, but 47% then reported later teeth getting only $1.

The president of Delta Dental of Virginia says the Tooth Fairy "is a great way to help make losing teeth less scary and more enjoyable for kids."
