My name is Josh Strickland, I am the owner of Eau Claire Dent Repair. My motto has always been:  “Whatever you do, do it to the absolute best of your ability.”

I am meticulous in all things and have often been called a perfectionist, which in this industry, is a good thing! 


I first found out about Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) in 2003, while living in Denver. I was hooked immediately. Throughout my 17 years in the PDR industry, I have traveled all over America, as well as a few other countries, and I have to say Eau Claire is one of my favorites.  In the Fall of 2006, I was working a hail storm in Eau Claire. I fell in love with the City, as well as my wife, Jennifer. We’ve lived in Eau Claire together since 2007, and have thoroughly enjoyed seeing our city grow.


In the 17 years that I have been in the PDR industry, I’ve gained a multitude of experience, as well as a ton of expertise in different areas. While traveling, I’ve learned from, and worked along side some of the best technicians in the world. I’ve learned how to manage small, as well as large scale operations.

I am always very professional in my business relationships, whether you’re a retail customer, bodyshop or dealership. 


All of these aspects have made me a veteran in the business, as well as a Master PDR technician. Paintless Dent Repair is a very tedious and delicate process. It demands meticulous attention at all times. This is why I was extremely selective on who I chose to train. I am proud to say, I chose well. Chris Bridges has become a very talented technician that you can trust with your vehicle. 

My name is Chris Bridges. I am a Sub-Contracted PDR Technician for Eau Claire Dent Repair. I have a passion for Dent Repair, and have put my all into learning and mastering the trade. With Josh being a master PDR Technician, I could not have asked for a better teacher. 


I have lived in the Chippewa Valley my entire life. My wife, Josefa, and I currently reside in Shawtown, Eau Claire. I love all kinds of music, and when I’m not pushing Dents, I collect and sell vinyl records. I also enjoy being outdoors, and watching baseball and basketball, go Brewers and Bucks! While I am fairly new to the trade, My acute attention to detail has translated into my work in PDR. I’ll treat your vehicle as if it were my own. Let me put the passion and skills I have developed to work for you!
