Default window replacement?

My pride and joy was hurt tonight when a cinderblock met its driver-side window at a high rate of speed; needless to say the window is shattered into millions of pieces... any fellow owners have experience with this? could I trust a dealership to get the door off/on with no new problems introduced? could I get the glass (and door tool) myself and make the replacement.. or not worth it... and where else should I fear the glass has gone that would cause major problems... any comments welcomed from the great folks here at the site...

One thing to be careful with if you do the work yourself is re-installing the water deflector. Once they start leaking, they can really be a pain to correct.
