The DAR Group was founded in 2000. It is strongly related to the basic medicine fields of physiology, anatomy, pharmacology and biochemistry. We focus on research in:

  • Local anesthesia: anatomy, pharmacology, and therapy. 
  • Sedation: general anesthesia, deep sedation, moderate and minimal sedation. 
  • Pain management: acute and chronic orofacial pain, orofacial cancerous pain and synalgia.

Further interests include:

  • Intravenous and inhalational sedation.
  • Sedation in hospital and ambulatory environments.
  • Sedation for all dental procedures, including oral surgery, pediatric dentistry, and general dentistry. 
  • Perioperative patient management: intellectual disability, physical disability, comorbid illness/medical complexity, and dental phobia.
