There's dust under my IPad mini's screen

So there's a dent on the side of my ipad and there's dust coming in from it. Is there any way I can get the dust out? If not how much does fixing the dent and getting the dust out from under the screen cost? Edit: here's the dent

Could you post a picture of the dent? I want to see how bad it is and if it will still cause problems after removing the dust. Adding images to an existing question

To remove the dust you should remove the front panel iPad Mini 3 Wi-Fi Front Panel Replacement (you only need to go up to step 29, as you are not replacing it) and then clean the display with a microfiber cloth.
