Dent is a census-designated place (CDP) in Green Township, Hamilton County, Ohio, United States. The population was 10,497 at the 2010 census.
Dent was originally known as Challensville in the 19th century, named for the local minister Rev. James Challenge. A post office called Challensville was established in 1843, the name was changed to Dent in 1846 at the urging of local resident and then-state representative Charles Reemelin. Reemelin was said to have disliked naming places after people and instead thought that "Dent" represented the geography of the area, with the depression of the land just east of Harrison Pike. The Dent post office closed in 1904. The present name "Dent" is after its setting in a valley (or dent).
Veterans Park was constructed in the 1990s on the former site of the Dent Drive-In. The 25-acre (10 ha) park contains a walking trail.
