There really is no trick per say.Either the dent is shallow and or large enough to be worked out or its not..I f you can actually get to the back of the dent you might be able to muscle it out with a nice push...Maybe even some light taps with a rubber mallet and a sandbag..Compressed air and a hair dryer can work on large shallow dents..Sometimes you can work them out with your fingers..

Well a sandbag goes over the inverted part of the dent...and then you tap from the other side..Its like a steel dolly with a bit of forgiveness.
