The dent artist takes great pride in the work he turns out. That is something hard to find these days.You surpassed my expectations Phillip! The repair you did on my truck required some paint work as well. The paint shop he works with matched the color perfectly. I agree with a prior review that stated he treats your car like it was his own. Thank you phillip!

I called Phillip and set up an appointment, he agreed to meet me before his normal business hours to help me with my work schedule. I was a few minutes early and he was there waiting for me! He took a quick look at the car and said it would probably take about 3 business days to fix, about 1 1/2 days later he called to tell me my car was ready and was able to fix it right on his estimate. He agreed to meet me early again to pick up my car. When I arrived he had the shop open and the car ready for my inspection. Phillip was very accommodating and professional. Thanks for a great job!! I highly recommend The Dent Artist for all your paint less dent repair needs.

Found Mr. Wilkinson via YP.com and because good reviews and close by, I took my car by for an estimate. Fender had minor damage I thought could be fixed. Phillip was knowledgeable and great to talk to. He convinced me my fender had just enough damage, it really needed to be replaced at body shop, which he then recommended me to. I appreciate that a lot. So Phillip didn't do the work, but I came away very impressed and would recommend him to anyone, just based on his demeanor and his professionalism. Really nice guy.

I was in search of a way to fix my truck after a minor bone head incident. First, I called a few body shops and all wanted over $1,000 for what was very minor, but was a horrible eye sore to me! I came across Mr. Wilkinsons shop and scheduled an appointment... I love my truck again! He exceeded all expectations from the get go! He took the time to educate me about the process and kept me updated on my vehicle. Again, thank you Mr. Wilkinson for your attention to detail and quality work!

I rarely do on line reviews. But every once in a great while I will have an experience that just blows me away. A couple of months back, I had the great pleasure to meet one of the most professional, courteous, and Honest business owners I have ever met....Mr. Phillip Wilkinson aka. The Dent Artist. I am very picky about my car and consider myself a car buff. And as soon as I talked to the Artist, I knew I had made the right decision. I own a 2006 Ion Redline and over time had acquired quite a few scuffs, scrapes, and yes hail damage. I had lost a lot of my passion for my car after all this. And will admit,had become quite lazy with it's appearance. I took it to The Artist....and WOW....words cannot express how amazed I was. The dent work is the best ...period!!! But he went way above and beyond with my car. He got 99% of all the other scratches, scuffs, etc. out as well. My car looked like I had remembered it when it was new. Mr. Wilkinson literally re-energized my Love of car detailing and have been back at it ever since. Mr. Wilkinson is one of those very few people I have met in my life who radiates true knowledge and Love's his craft enough to make every job he touches as near perfect as it can be. I would drive across the state to have this man work on my vehicles from now on. I highly suggest if your looking for any dent repair needs....End Your Search here at The Dent Artist !! You have found the best.

This guy loves what he does. He has my blue Lexus Rx330 looking spanking brand new. I definetely recommend ~ Honest Businessm and Super Professional work. I was skeptical getting dent work done outside of Lexus dealership but the reviews on this business made me think twice. I'm soooo glad I decided to take it here. His quotes are fair and honest. I will go to the Dent Artist, Phil, year after year. Highly Recommend

I found Phillip in the yellow pages. I drove my Suburban in for an estimate. He gave me an honest quote. I then made an appointment, and I could not see where any dings were!

Phillip has earned my business, he has since done my pick up, again, I could not see where the dings were. He is now working on my Tahoe! He truly is an artist! He is a good christian man and is as honest as they come. Phillip, you are the best! *****

Many Thanks,

Kenney

The owner, Phillip runs his business with honesty and integrity. Within minutes I felt comfortable taking my car in. He took care of everything which included taking my car to a body shop to replace the hood. Before dropping off my car he analyzed what was ahead of me and gave me a day to come back. From what I understand a lot of places will take your car and it will sit there in line. Why not have someone tell you when to bring it back at a time they can get on it immediately? Everything was done within 5 days. I bought my car used and after Phillip got a hold of it he had it looking better than it ever had. I did a lot of research on the internet reading a lot of reviews. I hope this review has you leaving with calling The Dent Artist. Thank you for taking the time to read my review.

Excellent Work! The cost was so reasonable I added a depression in my hood to the list. I had never had this service done before so I did not know how they would get to all the dents. He did the work by using existing openings without any drilling to the car.

I was skeptical about removing a large subtle depression in a new aftermarket hood. It was a piece of cake for him and this whole process took less than a couple of hours. The bottom line is that I can't even find where the dents are now. Highly recommended!

Great work done by an honest professional

I don’t usually rate places online, but this one-man shop deserves a write up. In all my interactions with the "Dent Artist" he’s been a straight shooter and he does great work. He discounted one of my cars because he wasn’t happy with how it turned out. It looked perfect to me but he insisted on a discount. A really nice and professional guy with high standards.



I've taken in 2 different cars – the first for hail damage in '09 and the second for door dings based on the magic he did to the first car. I recently referred my folks to him after a hail storm in October '10. He fixed both their cars like new and also fixed a rattle in my mom’s car just to be nice. I was so impressed by his kindness and professionalism. I hope this review helps his business. (I also posted this review to other sites.)

Perfection

Went over to Phillip's shop to get some bad waves out of my Tacomas hood. Phillip was super friendly and did great work at an amazing price considering his competition. As particular as I am about my vehicles and how careless others seem to be about dinging other vehicles I'm 1000% sure I'll be there again. Highly recommend.

Highly Recommended!

The "Dent Artist" is the perfect name for Mr. Wilkinson! He took out two door dings, buffed some scratches out and touched up a scratch that couldn't be buffed out on my wife's Crown Vic - all this for a very reasonable price and in less time than I had anticipated. I recommend him without hesitation!

I found perfection.

I found perfection in Phillips work and he included integrity and honesty at no additional charge. I live in Rowlett, NE of Dallas. It is an hour drive and to me worth every mile. I have a Jaguar that I am in love with and have been for over 100,000 miles thanks to Phillip/Dent Artist. He has kept all of my cars and trucks running and looking new for the last decade and a half. The unique opportunity to have someone with as much knowledge about every aspect related to an automobile has truly saved me an uncountable amount of money and grief. Thank you Phillip... Matt

Very Rare Find !

I'm 66 and have never trusted anyone in the auto repair business, until now.



I got a very reasonable quote from Phil and decided to have him do the work.



But wait a minute! He suggested that my money would be better spent doing some other minor repairs that he did not do so he referred me to another shop.



HOW'S THAT FOR INTEGRITY FOLKS !!!!!!!!



No wonder he has been in business so long.
