Dentist 's  Response
You should understand that malodor is caused by many reasons like decayed teeth, poor oral hygiene, gastric problems,Sinusitis, liver disorder, diabetis, smoking, alcohol consumption, tobacco chewing. If the problem is due to calculus and plaque it can be removed by scaling and polishing of your teeth. Flossing of teeth and tongue cleaning using tongue scraper should be done daily. Any systemic problem should be identified by a physician and appropriate treatment for it should be obtained.

most of the time bad breath(technically- halitosis) is due to improper oral hygiene,but since u say u have already shown to a dentist i think that aspect is taken care of.
things u can do to prevent halitosis are-
-drink water frequently(dry mouth also causes bad odour)
-gargle mouth well after eating
-avoid garlic,onions and other foods having strong pungent smells
-keep cardamom, sauf(fennel) in the mouth
try these and let me know,
take care
