Sometimes can, sometimes cannot be done - depending on the thickness of the wood wear or skin surface, and on whether it is actually wood - some are a composite that cannot be sanded. Also, deep scratches and dents might mean that if it is refinished, those might have to be filled with plastic wood dough rather than sanded out, because the typical laminate thickness is only from 1mm to 3mm thick (for cheapo to better quality flloring respectively) - that is AWFULLY thin to tolerate more than a light surficiall sanding.

Hardwood Flooring - Sales/installation/Refinishing would be your Search the List category to find a vendors to look at your floor and bid. You will likely find some of the more established and professional firms will not touch it - many will not do laminate sanding, though msot will chemically strip and refinish the urethane wear surface - but that only fills in your dents and scratches with urethane or wood filler to make the floor smooth, does not make them visually go away.
