No, the schools won't turn you down simply for a few bad grades, but you will need to work hard to raise your GPA up. An upward grade trend will do wonders for your application. I suspect that schools will also require you to take the TOEFL exam (which tests your English language abilities).

By the way, if you are considering medical school, you'll want to visit the Pre-medical forum. If you are considering dentistry, then this forum (Pre-dental) is the right place for you! Welcome to SDN!
