Dent Doctor Franchise

Paint-free dent repair service

Dent Doctor, which began franchising in 1990, reported repairing over 350,000 vehicles in its first 14 years in business.

Using tools and training exclusive to Dent Doctor, the backside of each
dent is accessed and pressure is gently applied, removing the dent
without harming the original finish. No dry ice, heat or suction is
used. The dent will not "pop" back in later, and is a permanent repair.
