I'm a Canadian student and I got a D in genetics because my request for deferring the final exam (worth 50%) was denied..
I had a really bad flu during the day of the exam and the reason for denial was that I missed genetics exam(9am) but went to anatomy exam at 2pm on the same day... :( (They didn't understand how I was able to take 2pm exam while I was really sick to miss 9am exam.. :bigtears:)

I still have GPA of 3.6 but would having a D in my transcript affect my acceptance to any US dental schools a lot? Should I retake this course?

btw, it says "D1" in my transcript. 1 meaning that I missed an exam or a major assignment

Since its a genetics class, I would retake if I were in your position.
