Any plumber should be able to install that for you. You don't need a bathroom company, all the company will do is call a plumber.

Is the door a solid insulated door or can you carefully push the dent back out from the other side if the door is the very thin open back version? Either way, you can just have the damaged panel...

Besides running the fan on low constantly, you could also have the humidifier hooked up to the hot water side as opposed to the cold. Hot water will evaporate much easier i'm told.
