Weak power steering

My 2009 Santa Fe with 17 k miles was in a very minor accident (Passenger front fender scratched /headlight, some sensors). After repairs the power steering feels sluggish like it is working 80% compared to before, my dealer says fluid is right and no indicators the system is out of sorts. Any thoughts?

Define weak/sluggish. Is it harder to turn the wheel or does it seem like the vehicle doesn’t respond to inputs like it used to. By response, I mean does it seem to be less crisp, taking longer to respond or you have to turn the wheel further to get the same amount of turning.

Also, rather than describing the damage to car describe what actually happened - what hit what and at what kind of speed & angle. The “some sensors” thing is especially cryptic, by the way. So lay out the details of the repair as well.
