for most dents take a drill and make a small hole in the middle if the dent. Then put a coarse screw in the hole. Tie a small steal line around the screw and pull. It should pop out alot of the dent. The rest will have to be done with bondo. Also a pall point hammer can get things back into shape. But it will never be like factory. Metal stretches when it bends.

When I had issues like this I like to take it to the dent wizzard first to get out all that they can. Then take it to the body shop to take care of the frame, pantjob and such. I have found that they "the paintshop" will use a LOT less filler this way. Otherwise they will fill every little dent....
