My child has a smelly breath no matter how well we brush his teeth.

We must first check the child’s teeth to see if the odor comes from either a damaged tooth or the tissues around it. Usually when bad breath comes from the teeth, the lesions are obvious even to the parents and they do not need a specialist to diagnose them. If you do not see anything in your child’s teeth or gums and the tongue is well brushed, then the bad breath comes from other causes and you should consult your pediatrician.
