Possible to fix front grill bump?

Hi, been a member for a while but first time posting... Looks like someone backed their tow bar into me the other day in the parking lot. Would a body shop be able to knock this kind of dent out? The front grills won't pop back in in it's current condition. Really frustrates me when I see it now

Yikes. That is a HORRIBLE spot for a ding like that! Not sure if that can be fixed without getting a new hood. A body shop might know if that can be pulled out ok or not.. stop by one and have them take a look? The grilles will never go in properly with that ding there, and it will infuriate you to look at that every single day as it looks off.
