How do you nicely tell a server that they have severely bad breath?

I went for lunch today, and when my server asked me if I was ready to order I nearly gagged at the way her breath smelled. This was at a diner, counter service so she was only a couple feet away, and it was horrible. I wanted to say to her, boy it sure is dry in here, I bet you would love a glass of ginger ale. *(it is a trick someone told me gets rid of bad breath) But i didn't say anything. But it was so horrible that every time she came by to ask if I needed anything I held my breath. IS there a polite way to say something to your server in a crowded situation where there is really no privacy?
