I just wanted to put this out there for anyone who inevitably asks where to get dents/dings/hail damage removed. I have gone to the Auto Dentist in the past with great results. However, they are $$$$, so I decided to try someone else.

I had a few quotes from mobile guys for TWO dents, all ballparked between $140 and $170 (Autodentist was $170). I also called Dent-Tec, a mobile guy in Aylmer who does 75% or more of the dealership dent repairs in the city. I stopped by his place last night, and for $100 I had the dents removed. I also had him remove every other dent on the car for $10 each (actually he removed about 6-8 more, all dime-sized, for $30 extra). Total damage was $130 and the # of dents he removed, flawlessly, was over 10!

His basic pricing structure is: $90 for the first one, $10 each additional dent. I think anything larger than a toonie is extra but I don't know for sure.

I'd HIGHLY recommend him. Excellent work, unbelievable prices, and he's probably the busiest and most experienced one in the area at this trade.

I saw him take out a 9" line (dent) from the front 1/4 panel of a 2010 Odyssey while I waited - I was early. The panel looks 100% new now and it was a heck of a deep crease before he worked the magic on it.

AFAIK, he's only mobile for big clients such as dealerships, etc, where he has 90% of his business. The single jobs, like us, go to him and pay cash. He's only 5 minutes from the Champlain bridge. His garage (huge) is really clean, and frankly the neighbourhood is f'n filled with huge mansions - worth a look on its own. :)

Did he do it in front of you? Curious as to the process.

he removed them in front of me. he' got a huge assortment of diffrent colour handles with diffrent andles and shapes on the end of it. pretty cool to watch him take out a dent.

Agreed - it's almost like art in front of your eyes. Very interesting to watch, and frankly, hearing his wife's stories of him taking 3-4 hours to do a single dent when he first started learning, and now doing single dents in sometimes as short as 2-3 minutes, was hilarious in and of itself! He makes it look VERY easy. I can wager that it's not easy. At all.

Once again as Ive said for pasty 3-4 years. The best guy Ive ever delt with. The dent on the s2k was said to never be removed without a drill and pull and paint anywhere else, He went at it with me knowing it may not work out. hours later it looked like new!!!

AMAZING SERVICE and a great guy!

This guy is awesome. i went to him in the spring, he pulled 32 dents out of my car for $220, 5-6 of them being the size of an apple or bigger.

I highly recommend him!

As I mentioned before, Doug has always worked on my cars and my wifes' cars before. They do great work and are excellent with paint (airbrush). However, the work by Gilles was as good or better, and about 1/2 the price or even less. Nothing wrong with the Auto Dentist, except that equal or better results, can be had for much cheaper, through Dent-Tec.
