DENT DOCTOR in South Africa was founded in 1992 in Johannesburg with one outlet specialising in the process known as ‘paintless dent removal’ (PDR). The branch rapidly expanded to minor auto body repairs and the successful business model was franchised a few years later. Today DENT DOCTOR has a national footprint base consisting of some 33 Franchise outlets specializing in both minor and major auto body repairs, creating employment in excess of over 1000 employees.


DENT DOCTOR is proud in stating that we represent the strongest brand in the auto body repair industry in South Africa.
The following quotes from Solly Heyns, DENT DOCTOR Franchisor, summarises the DENT DOCTOR philosophy and keys to success:

“If we as DENT DOCTOR continue to improve our service levels wherever we can, ultimately we will reap the benefits as our brand recognition will grow from strength to strength.
The DENT DOCTOR entrepreneurs continually strive to promote the DENT DOCTOR brand.

“Franchisees know that it is very important to continually re-invest in their businesses to ensure a long-term success.”
