Unfortunately, this record will also follow you to dental school. You have to report transcripts from all colleges and universities. So dental schools will see you flunked out of med school and it will raise some serious red flags on your application.
I think the best thing to do, would be to contact some individual schools that you are interested in and explain your situation. They would probably tell you the best plan of attack or if there is a better option for you.
Best of luck!!
