No matter what you do, the replacement paint job is unlikely to be as good as the original. If your dealer does body work, I would at least ask for their opinion and a price quote. I'm leaning toward your father's and JOE55's opinions here. I use my dealer for almost everything, but mine has some outside body shop they use.
As others have said, there are a lot of good body shops that repaint parts of cars that you can trust and will stand behind their work.
