Unhappy alignment problem for my C230

I have this problem of a dragging pull in my steering especially when I run above 56mph. Thought its an alignment problem so went to the mechanic for alignment. They tried doing the alignment and could not and told me that the inner tire road of the front right is little bent. They showed me that and it was really bent a little.
Do you think this is a serious problem and have to be fixed only by the mercedes dealer repair mechanic? Or it can be done by any mechanic?
Thank you very much.
Its 2006 Mb C230 sports sedan

any competent mechanic should be able to replace inner tie rods. If your mechanic can't do it I would probably start looking for a new mechanic.

The left front tie rod of my w209 was replaced by the dealership 2 years ago.

You will need an alignment after a tie rod change.
