Research is focussed on root canal cleaning and disinfection a.o. with laser activated irrigation and light activated nanoparticles, the use of lasers and light in endodontics such as Laser Doppler Flow Metry and dental laser bleaching. His department has also an epidemiological research line focussing on endodontic quality, minimal invasive restorative and endodontic techniques and the use of bioactive materials in endodontics.
He gives lectures worldwide on the use of light and lasers in endodontics, on dental laser bleaching, and on the application of nanotechnology for endodontic purposes. He is (co)author of more than 150 international peer reviewed articles together with the Ghent Dental Photonics Research Clustre and BIOMAD (Biomedical Applications in Dentistry).
