How Effective is Hypnotherapy for Dental Phobia?

Hello, I am an A-level student conducting research into dental phobias. I do not understand what hypnotherapy is and how it can be used to treat dental phobia. How effective is this method of treatment? Thank you very much.

I suggest you look at the website of a chap called Mike Gow. He is a dentist in Glasgow who specialises in hypnotherapy for dentally anxious patients. If you google Mike Gow you will find him. Hope this helps, Jenny.
