The metal is stretched, it requires a procedure that will push the dent in while "shrinking" the metal slightly in that spot. This procedure is called "off dolly". You hold a large flat dolly behind the panel very loosely (not tight against the metal) and then lightly tap the high spot from the outside. You could even do this with no dolly pretty effectively. Just LIGHTLY tap the dent with the flatest face body hammer you have. If all you have are the cheapie small faced junk hammers, borrow good ones or wait until you have one.
