ABS Specialists

American Breath Specialists are dental professionals dedicated to treating halitosis, also known as bad breath. Our ABS specialists are from a vast array of different geographical locations including the continental United States and Canada and even Australia. The word "specialists" on this web site does not refer to a recognized specialty in the dental or medical health care fields. There is no recognized specialty field in bad breath treatment.   All our listed health care providers are general dentists, periodontists, orthodontiists, or hygienists who have been trained in treating halitosis.

Locating a ABS Specialist is simple. Using our geographical  search you can easily navigate your way to a dentist in your area. Once you locate a dentist, you are provided with information needed to locate that dentist's: name, address, phone number. Some also have a professional biography.
