Unfortunately, the small diameter pronounced ones are harder to fix than the large, shallow broad ones, which can commonly just be pulled out with a vacuum dent puller.

If it can be done economically, an Appliance Repair - Large technician is the one for you - probably about $50-100 visit charge. IF it can be pulled with a vacuum puller, that would be your charge. If the panel needs to be taken off (generally only front door panel can be removed) to be hammered out from behind, then that much top maybe about 50% more depending on model.

Even if the dent can be pulled or hammered out (especially if takes hammering), the metal has been stretched so you will generally still have a noticeable (though less pronounced) flaw - and hammering can cause paint cracking or loss too (though obvisouly not applicable to stainless reefer).

My recommendation - find a good family picture, favorite cartoon, knick-knack or such and hang to cover it. I would have said reefer magnetic holder or business card except if true high-quality stainless it is non-magnetic - good way to tell the difference between high-quality high-nickel stainless and the chinese junk that will rust in a short time.

Here is another similar questions with several responses FYI, too -
