There's no one-size-fits-all answer to fixing dents. Where are they? How deep? How wide? Can they be reached from the inside? And so on

About the only way anybody could give you useful advice is if you posted photos. Is that possible?

Default Dent repair

If the dents are not huge, and the paint is not damaged, you can contact a "paintless dent removal" agency such as Dent Wizard, or Dent Works etc. They can usually get the dents out without having to grind and fill and repaint!
The cost is usually cheaper than conventional body work!
Seek one of those companies out and get an estimate! It's free!
Note: keep in mind that if the dents are a result of "buckling" due to a rear end impact, then the Dent Wizard folks wont be able to help you.
