I don't know of any way to perform a find...

Perhaps it's possible to create a self-join using a match with "dem" as the key...

How about a calculated field:

DemCount (calculation, number) =

Left(Field1, 3) = "dem"

+

Left(Field2, 3) = "dem"

+

Left(Field3, 3) = "dem"

.

.

.

This assumes you really mean how many Fields in a given Record contain "dem", not how many records or records and fields contain "dem". It also looks at the data in field, not the field names.
