Your stats are great and shouldn't hold you back in any way.

I have limited/no experience with your situation, but I'd imagine since you withdrew pretty early (as opposed to the middle or towards the end of the program) that it won't hurt you that bad. You will need excellent reasons for why you left and why you made the switch to dentistry. You will need a lot of dental-related experience, volunteer hours, etc. Not only to show the admission committees that you are serious but also so you can find out yourself if you like dentistry or not. It is a wonderful career but it is very different from other medical professions, make sure you know what you are asking for.

I think it is very wise that you do not wish to rush this process. The longer you wait to apply to dental school (while continuously getting experience with the field) the better your chances will be and the less nervous admissions committees will be about your dedication to the field.

Just my two cents.

Best of luck
