What exactly is Paintless Dent Removal?

Paintless Dent Removal, or PDR, is the art of removing small dings and dents from vehicles without using paint or fillers. The damaged area of the panel is meticulously massaged out from the backside to its original form. There is no heat, dry ice, suction, or magnetism used to remove the dent. PDR originated in auto factories in Europe many years ago. Today, an experienced and talented PDR technician is capable of removing dents up to 3 feet in diameter and still achieve excellent results.

What is the Dent Network?

The Dent Network was created by Cale Guin in 1997. The original idea was to help consumers and PDR companies find one another. The Dent Network was intended to be a part-time business aimed at promoting quality and integrity in the PDR business. It became quite apparent that PDR companies were in need of help and that the technicians felt isolated and left out in the cold by their respective training facilities.

Within months the Dent Network was producing a large number of hits with very little promotion. Currently, our biggest source of interest is coming from people looking for information on PDR training. Since the reputation of training facilities is less than stellar, the Dent Network has been giving the majority of its attention to training inquiries intended to help consumers find reliable PDR training. Unfortunately, we were severely understaffed, and realized that as a service to the PDR industry, it would be best if the operation was turned over to another company that could handle this site and maintain the integrity and ethics that were the original intentions of the Dent Network.
