A Must-Read Message From Dr. Richard Miller

I am often asked “why” I would want to specialize in curing bad breath and halitosis. Let me explain. When I began to cure bad breath, I had been in practice for almost 20 years. During that time, I had performed almost every dental procedure possible – from surgery to advanced restorative dentistry. I had long since mastered the techniques and procedures that define a superior dentist.

However, in 1993, I began to truly change people’s lives. I was able to see someone go from withdrawn and depressed to outgoing and optimistic, to save a marriage, to help weddings go forward instead of a broken engagement, to see estranged people find their love again, to help people get a job promotion, to help people who had given up hope and those who would not quit looking for a cure, to cure someone after 35 years of their seeking a cure. This is what drives me – knowing that I am truly changing people’s lives by curing their bad breath.

Sitting across from someone, hearing their story, and empathizing with their plight, occurs for me almost every day at the National Breath Center. These feelings have become a calling – to help people reclaim their normal lives by eliminating the insidious condition of chronic bad breath. Many people I see have tried numerous bad breath cures and seek me out because they have almost no hope left; I find great satisfaction in knowing I can cure them.

It is the greatest joy I could never have imagined when I entered dentistry. The moment in treatment when I know this person will be cured; that all I have done to learn and create this technique so that they might find the confidence and inner strength to face the world again, goes right to my heart. It is the most incredible feeling of love and satisfaction I have ever found in dentistry. And I get to do it every day!

Dr. Miller brings his passion for helping people to the National Breath Center where he has helped innovate many of the advanced and scientific techniques in use today. He performed his first Total Cure procedure in 1993, when the practice of halitosis elimination was in its infancy. Since then he has treated over 7,000 people from the United States and 27 countries since 1993 with a 99% cure rate.
