    Hello Kathy! What are your interior doors made from and what kind of finish do they have on them?

    You can buy stainable/paintable wood patch and fill it in then sand it down... you'll have to either paint or stain it after that though...

    I would also determine what is causing the dents. A simple doorstop might help prevent future ones.

    If your doors are made of wood you may be able to puff up the wood with steam. Put a wet washcloth over the dent and press a hot iron against it. Use care not to burn your paint.
