Tooth Fairy Payments Drop: Toothless Children Report Quarterly Loss
Updated: 5/18/2009 1:50:47 PM
Losing teeth can be painful. But as children wiggle and pull their fleeting baby teeth, the pain is often offset by one thing: cash.
Cold, hard cash.
Unfortunately for children currently of the tooth-losing age, a recent study showed that downward economic trends are not confined to Wall Street. Even Tooth Fairy payments are heading south.
In the last year alone, Tooth Fairy payments have dropped from $2.09 per tooth to $1.88 per tooth1.
An old, bloody tooth just isn’t worth what it used to be.
As we all know, the Toothy Fairy only supplies the magic, parents supply the funds. But, in today’s economy, many parents are looking to save money on their family’s dental care.
Thanks to DentalPlans.com, parents can do this with just a few clicks and a few minutes of their time. Here’s what one DentalPlans.com member had to say about her family’s discount dental plan from DentalPlans.com:
“My husband and I have six children and no dental insurance; this was something we had been putting off. We purchased a family plan from DentalPlans.com so that we could afford to get our children’s teeth cleaned twice a year,” said Kelly, a DentalPlans.com Member from Broken Arrow, Ohio.
Rather than dip into the motivational Tooth Fairy fund, parents in situations like Kelly can visit DentalPlans.com and enter their ZIP code to browse DentalPlans.com’s offering of 30+ national and regional discount dental plans.
