Per my understanding from Alisha (@flannelist), who used to be an Apple technician, Apple does not actually repair iPads; they only offer basically a trade-in allowance.

I have, however run into a similar situation with an iPad my daughter-in-law got for free. it had a slight bend in it that resulted in a cracked screen and I went to the trouble to locate a replacement housing before I opened it up, but held off on ordering it.

As it turns out I didn't need the housing as the bend was minor enough that I was able to straighten it perfectly by hand so when I put the new screen in it fit perfectly.

@dao9418, post some pictures of your iPad with its bent screen and we'll see if we can figure out what you should do next.

Correct on the repair front and ditto for iPad housings, they are usually soft enough to bend back into shape without too much work. (or out of shape when struggling to get them open)

Well, you see, it's not just the screen that gets bent, it's the chassis as well, and I don't know of anyone that sells replacement chassises. You could try taking it to an Apple store, but I doubt they'll be able to fix it.
