BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Dental insurance organization on tooth fairy reward

tooth fairy

On Tooth Fairy Day Thursday, one might ponder in these current times: How much should she put under the pillow?

Age, behavior and recent payouts, along with how many teeth the child has already lost, are top considerations when figuring out what to give, according to Oak Brook, Illinois-based Delta Dental Plans Association, a nonprofit national association of insurance companies who on Monday released the result of its annual Tooth Fairy Poll of more than 1,000 parents.

While those key considerations made the list, cash is king: 46% of parents surveyed said how much spare cash was on hand is the deciding factor on what to give for a fallen-out tooth.

The average spend? Stating that the economy — the S&P 500 as a cited measure — might have something to do with it, the poll found that the average payout for first tooth is $4.96 and $3.70 for subsequent teeth. A healthy economy for those losing teeth, according to the poll results.
