Bad Breath After Dairy

Patient : Every time, without a doubt, if I have something dairy based, be it cheese, milk (flavoured or plain), chocolate or yoghurt, I tend to get really bad breath afterwards, I can sort of taste a funny taste and I've been told that my breath doesn't smell quite right afterwards. Is there a reason for this? I don't seem to get bad breath any other time UNLESS I've had something dairy. The doctor I saw said 'it happens to everyone, just have a TicTac.' I'm not sure that this is the reason, because I haven't experienced this with my partner or anyone else. Their breath doesn't smell strange afterwards, or if it does smell in any way, it smells like the product they've just had. Is there someone else I should be referring my question to, a dentist, oral health surgeon? My local dentist tells me I have great teeth/oral health, no gum disease, no decay. So, I'm not sure it's anything tooth related though. Please help!
