$1 is a good rate for a tooth that's fallen out.  Instead of putting a bill under the pillow get one of those Sacajawea dollar coins that's more of a gold color and put it under the pillow.

The tooth fairy at our house usually leaves $1-5 (depending on what is in the tooth fairy's wallet that particular day, or how much courage it took for that tooth to be removed).

Our tooth fairy hasn't tried non-monetary rewards yet, but I'm guessing our daughter would really like more cartoon-watching time, a free-pass from doing a chore for a week (such as cleaning her pet's cage), or an extra helping of ice cream at dessert time -- with a note from the tooth fairy that she got the OK from mom and dad.

The non-monetary rewards sound great.  I was surprised to hear from my niece the going rate is $5-10.  I thought that was steep.  A's on report cards were going for $5-$20.

A new toothbrush. Explain how important it is to protect the new tooth. I told my grandson  "your a young man now so the new teeth are your adult teeth. He brushed after eating everything. I thought he would brush the white off (smile)
