Sorry to hear that. Spritz the entire top with warm water, both sides, and clamp between some cabinet grade plywood while you find another top.

Maingeezer made a valid point. However, while your making the new top, I would try to straighten this one for future use. The only time that I had braces dent was on engelmann spruce, and it was on a very lightly built classical top. It's frustrating.

This sounds like a good opportunity to try steaming out the dents. Just in case the need arises in future, the techniques will have been tested. I'm sure we all know somebody who needed to do this, sometime in the past.
