Default Dent In Door

Got this new door installed and some guys moving stuff for me nailed it and put a crack. What is best for making it flush again and some what strong. I know it wont look brand new but something better than it is. Thanks for any help its appreciated.

It might take a little digging but you should be able to buy a new skin for the door. I might be just as fast and maybe just as cheap to replace the door.

A whole new flat panel door slab is about $20.00. A whole new prehung with the trim is about $50.00.

I think I once successfully used tape and drywall compound on a brand new hollow core door that I dropped onto a pointed thing. That door wasn't even a half hour old. It got away from me somehow.
