Colgate may be the most popular brand in North America when it comes to toothpaste; however, Korea offers a lot more brands of toothpaste. We know that a top English-speaking dentist in Korea like Minish tends to recommend to use various types and flavors of toothpaste as they offer different functions and aftertaste.

They emphasize on carefully selecting their ingredients and they are more on the expensive side as they have carefully selected their distribution channel only offering to places like department stores, duty free and few selected retail shops. You can get it from Olive Young at a reasonable price when they offer promotions such as buy one get one free. This Korean toothpaste offers long lasting mint flavour in your mouth and this is one of my personal favourite.

Median Dental Care IQ 93%

Median Dental Care IQ product tastes a bit different than general min flavour. They perform similar to other products listed above, but something uniqueness regarding to taste is there to let you feel differently. They usually do so many promotions in different stores like buying one getting another one free, so I will never buy it as original price without any discount. So please check out online and offline stores, typically Olive Young if you are in Korea since they have English version of website for English speakers. https://global.oliveyoung.com/
