Founded in 1873, Colgate has been one of the top 3 brands of toothpaste in the world. It is available in nearly 200 countries and is valued at over $15 billion.
Whether you’re a fan of the minty-white regular Colgate, gel-based Colgate, or advanced teeth-whitening toothpaste, it is indisputable that the company has a big chunk of the market cornered.
As for free toothpaste samples, Colgate has two popular programs:

If you’re lucky to be included in the annual program, 25 of your students can get free Colgate®toothpaste and toothbrush samples, as well as easy-to-use oral hygiene classroom materials for you. Unfortunately, these kits are limited and go quickly on a first come, first served basis.

You might need to send proof about your profession or office address, but it is worth the effort since Colgate gives away plenty of products, which you could then give to patients either for free or for a minimal fee.
