AMBER: Estimating dielectric constant

Hello, everyone.

I've read some articles when use DFT calculations with continuum
models to take into account the properties of the active site of any
My questions are:
which is the correct value of the dielectric constant of the continuum?
Is there any way to estimate a dielectric constant inside the active
site of a protein from molecular dynamics simulations?

I'll appreciate if someone could give a piece of advice, or recommend
me any article on this subject.

Thanks in advance
