Door Ding Removal

I am now up to two door dings. Very small but I notice them.
Any recommendations? Dealer, body shop, dent remover place?
Would appreciate any experience.
Thanks

Where are they? How big? Pics would help.

You may be a candidate for PDR.

very small. Tried to take pics but they are so small you can only see on an angle and with the mirror effect you can not see them. They are about 2-3mm, did not break the paint but I know they are there and can see them when I look at the passenger door from a very low angle.

Where are they? Are they close to any creases or edges of the panels?

I had one on the rear quarter panel. No paint chipping or scratch, so I took it to the local paintless dent body shop and they pulled it right out. I can't even tell what side it was on.

The dents are on the passenger door on the door crease.

OMG - Found a local PDR shop/technician. Remarkable. Had 2 dings about 2mm above the door crease. Totally gone without a trace. Even when you look down the door from the door jam it is gone. got out of there for 145 bucks. Great. Highly recommend it.

PDR the only way to go, I had 10 hail dents from a storm that rolled through in April, you can't even tell they were ever there!

Cool, glad to hear you all were successful.

I've got two dents on the passenger side door as well, but like some others they're so small that I'm questioning whether they're possible to get out or not. If I trace my finger along them the indentation is ever so slight; if I didn't already know there was a ding there I probably wouldn't have even registered they were there.

Sounds like you were successful BacktoGM?

What does "PDR" stand for?

The day I picked up my car, someone came in for service minutes before I got there and dinged the door (and left). It was small and the dealer apologized even though it wasn't really his fault. He fixed it the next day and I can't even tell where it was. To be honest, I've forgetten which side it was. When I purchased the car, I bought "PDR" insurance. Well, now I have another that needs fixing. It's very small, just above the wheel arch on the rear quarter. The PDR guy said he can't fix it becaise it's double walled and he can't get his tools behind the panel. Not sure if he's just saying this because he can't be bothered to remove any trim like the plastic liner.
