What kind of dent repair?

Not sure what kind of dent repair I should get for this kind of dent.
People are saying "paintless dent removal" and some other people are saying that won't work. I am not an expert, so I need some suggestions on how to remove this dent. Thank you

I am no expert, but as there is an edge involved, I doubt it can be done paint-less.

Not an expert here either but my guess is you need a body shop.

It does not hurt to get estimate by any painless dent repairman.
Look at how they worked it on a dent on an edge.

+1 The fold in the metal will most certainly require paint work.

mbvis, not sure what to call the area of the dent in the Pacifica but it is not an edge. Maybe a crease? But I agree it would not hurt anything to ask for as estimate.

For the dent on the OP's car, I think the repairman will use some sort of clamp for leverage then he pushes the dent slowly out from inside.
