About Poppa Dent & How Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) Works

Poppa Dent started in the paintless dent removal industry in 1999 in Buffalo NY after having completed extensive education and training in the field. We continue to service individual customers, dealerships, and auto auctions from throughout Western New York, as well as neighboring parts of Ohio and Pennsylvania. We repair dents and dings that result from incidents such as minor collisions, shipping damage (on new cars), hail damage, and from other things such as shopping carts.

Our technique differs greatly from traditional collision repair, and our prices are a fraction of it. We consider ourselves more as auto body restoration specialists, because we fix your car while leaving the original paint job and finish intact.

Paintless Dent Removal from the Inside Out

How do we do that? We have the ability to remove dents and dings from the inside out.

This is not at all like “hammering out” or “pulling out” a dent. Poppa Dent’s process is very different from that of conventional collision shops. For example, we:

  • Do NOT use fillers to complete our work
  • Do NOT drill into your car’s body or use screws
  • Do NOT strip or sand your vehicle’s finish

Rather, the metal is “massaged” and manipulated back to its original shape by a thoroughly trained, skilled professional with a complete set of highly specialized tools and many years of experience. We never harm the exterior finish on your car, which allows you to maintain the integrity of your original factory finish or your prized custom paint job.

For these reasons, our work can actually increase the value of your car: your car will be free of dents, and the body will not have filler in it! This comes in especially handy for leased cars; historical, vintage, and luxury vehicles; and vehicles with hard to match or one-of-a-kind finishes. If you are planning on selling your car, using our paintless (and painless!) process now can increase your profit later.
