Depends on how deep the dent is, is it a sharp crease, has the paint cracked in or near the dent? There are kits available that can pop out a simple dent, but not a more severe dent. You can Google paintless dent removal to see the kits and where to get one.
Rock climbing is a very fun hobby but it can also be very dangerous. Wearing a helmet when you climb can be a life saver, but it is important that you make sure that you are wearing the right helmet both for the activity you are performing and for your head.
When it comes to selecting the right type of helmet there are two main types to choose from, suspension and sponge. The suspension helmets are very similar to a construction helmet, its a hard shell with a netting on the inside. These are really great for vertical dropping objects but they tend to be a little heavy. The other type of helmets are the foam helmets. These ones are made out of a lighter-weight polystyrene or polypropylene foam with a hard shell over it. It works by absorbing the energy of the of the falling object in the plastic and will deform the foam permanently. The durability of the helmet depends on the thickness of the shell, but because the impact on the helmet permanently damages the helmet it may not be very effective for extensive use.
After you have chosen the type of helmet that you will be using, its time to head into making sure that you have the right fit for your helmet. Keep in mind that you will be more likely to use a helmet that fits correctly and is comfortable, before buying you should test out the helmet like you do with a pair of shoes. Many of the top climbing stores will allow you to try on and test out the helmet to make sure that it fits properly.
There are two main features that you have to pay attention to when trying on and picking out the right fitting helmet, they are adjustability and the chin strap. You start by placing the helmet on your head with it straight on your head making sure that you don’t tilt the helmet because you have to keep your forehead protected. Next you want to shake your head from side to side, does the helmet move? If it does then you want to either look for a different size helmet or if you can adjust the straps on the inside of the helmet so that it fits snugly. Then buckle the chin strap, it should fit snugly on your chin and form a Y shape around your ears. There should not be any slack in the straps and if you wear a pack make sure that you can lift your head to look up while wearing the helmet.
A few side notes to keep in mind when considering the helmet you want to get. If you are going to be climbing in a very hot or very cold climate when you buy the helmet make sure to take your headscarf or hat with you so that you get a helmet that fits with them underneath. Where you are going to be climbing can also have an impact on the helmet that you will buy, if you are going to be climbing in a cold climate that has ice you will want to get a solid helmet that will protect you from falling debris, while if you are going to be climbing in a warmer climate you will want to get a helmet that has air vents to allow for air circulation.
Taking out dents requires special tools and expertise. It is very easy to take a dent and make it worse trying to "fix" it. There are companies like Dent Wizard (in the Yellow Pages) that do that type of work. If you insist on doing it yourself you need a trim removal tool to gain access to the sheet metal, then remove whatever might be in your way (brackets/wiper motor/window motor). As to how to work the dent itself out, that lies beyond the scope of my expertise.
This depends greatly on the depth of the dent.If it is somewhere in the area of 1/8 inch deep you might be able to Bondo it and seal and paint it. But, if it is any deeper than this anything less than a bodyshop repair will look very noticable.This sounds more like a crease than a dent, and it cannot be popped out without a dent puller.

I see this has been here a while... But hopefully it can help. The only multisport helmet to hit the market recently is the Kong Scarab. We had a few in the shop here with mixed results.. It's rated for a bunch of sports though variously I got responses like "too heavy" "too hot" Too bulky" etc, depending on whether it was a climber, paddler, skater etc.. So I guess the answer is yes, it does exist, but it's not perfect...
Use find or search and find the word "dent' in a file. Once you do (and it will probably appear in many files) you need to either delete it or replace it with dentist (presumably). You have (or someone has) created something which is effectively an instruction to put your companies name whenever dent is typed. This ability (and I am not up to date with Word / I use an old version) is probably also in the help dialogue somewhere...try a search using a few keywords relative to your problem....or go to help and wind your way through all the dialogue....the latter is not a bad idea by the way. I often find answers to what I consider dumb dumb problems (always in retrospect) that I have incurred (once and once only). Good luck.
