Your dealer told you correctly ... at least from what I can see. This appears to only be cosmetic in the sidewall rubber. The normal litmus for sidewall damage is as long as you aren't seeing sidewall cords, there's no bulging, or you're not losing air, the tire should be fine. Keep an eye on it, as if you see any of these things in the future, you'll want to get it replaced. Sidewalls cannot be repaired.
