Our Story

The Dent Tent story starts way back in 2006 when our founder and our Master Technician David Othon was accepted to an exclusive training program in the cold and rainy northwest. David was trained in the Paintless Dent Repair craft by one of the oldest and most respected Master Technicians in the entire Paintless Dent Removal industry. They called his mentor the “o’l Marine” and he was as tough and detail oriented as they come! The o’l marine was a 25-year veteran in the trade and he had tons of experience and had seen it all! From that great mentor David mastered the highly disciplined techniques it takes to do professional and high-quality auto restoration.

David learned his craft while working primarily on military bases around the country and having Travis Air Force Base as home base. David honed his skills for years before he took the plunge and opened his own shop (the original The Dent Tent) on McHenry and has been servicing the entire 209, Modesto, Ripon, Riverbank, Ceres, Manteca, Oakdale, Turlock and surrounding Stanislaus County area since 2011.

We honor the o’l marine and David by committing ourselves to excellence on every job we do. Our ultimate goal is to provide you with the best automotive restoration service possible!
