10 minute halicheck at Breezecare Breath Clinic

halitosis breezecare clinicThe Breezecare Breath Clinic in London appears in google ads for halitosis searches. Breezecare's first clinic was in Australia, founded by Dr Geoffrey Speiser. They seem to be focusing on halitosis sufferers and basing their help on halicheck 'breath testing'. In principle this seems the most sensible approach, but 2 potential obstacles would seem to be :

1. Most sufferers don't seem to be able to 'smell on demand'. It seems transient (otherwise, you would presume any dentist would tell them)

2. In the health-system, treatment is not based on a money back guarantee.

The good thing about this clinic is that it is offering an option of a 10-minute breath check (by a consultant rather than the Dentist). This seems a great 'cheap' choice for professional diagnosis. It keeps costs as low as possible, and the halicheck is at least a 'real test' (i.e. you get a bit of paper). However, the confidence in the halicheck can't be judged currently, and also since many sufferers can't smell on demand, there's a good chance they won't be smelling on the day. The clinic itself does seem to be trying it's best in the halitosis arena. Like most/all, they are likely unaware of metabolic halitosis.

That said, anyone taking up this option is suggested to keep expectations low, except perhaps, if you have traditional 'classic' permanent localized halitosis. But it is posted in good faith so that the option is known about.

It would be interesting to know of any results. An email has been sent asking about the price.
