if you can remove the interior you can probably tap them out. as long as the door works i don't see a reason to replace the whole thing remember bondo is your friend. and if it isn't on the insurance that says it was damaged it never happend you feel me?

those look like gashes rather than dints to me...if it is a gash is going to be a bitch to tap them out if you can do it.
