There's no way to remove dents from wood unless you want to paint the wood to cover the repair.

Before you demo it, take a steam iron from the laundry, wet the dent, apply on medium or low, remove before wood burns, just 5 seconds- experiment. Try with steam, if stubborn. Apply again after wetting, till it's out. If burning, use a material between. I've done this on cedar decking for years and years.
Be safe, G
