It just seems to be one of those things that is unavoidable. It's going to happen.

Using industry tricks and know-how a good repair technician should be able to perform paintless dent repair. This essentially means that it is possible to have a dent repaired on your vehicle fairly quickly and without disturbing the current paint job.
This can eliminate the need to repaint or touch up the affected area of the vehicle's body, potentially saving you the extra money that would be required to apply new paint as well as reducing the total repair time.

The time consuming part comes into play when it becomes necessary to apply new paint to the body of the vehicle, so if you can eliminate the need to re-paint, you are effectively eliminating the need to leave you car at the shop for more than a few hours.
Most dent repairs of this nature can be performed within an hour or so, depending on how extensive the damage is, how busy the repair shop happens to be, and whether or not there are any complications during the repair. Keep in mind, unexpected factors such as a busy schedule, or the shop or unavoidable damage to the paint job are still a possibility.
