In community college you study first 2 years of college or University or say 2 years of a 4 years bachelors degree. After 2 years you can transfer to a University.
Admission to community colleges in generally open and anyone 18 years of age or who has passed grade 12 can gain admission. There are several 2 year colleges in each major city and you can google community college and Seattle and find one you like.
It is very unlikely you would become a dentist or a Doctor going this route though not impossible, why is very long reply but generally speaking Medical and Dental school admissions are very tough in USA (lot tougher then Pakistan) and seldom someone from community college route makes it.
You might need to give TOEFL, apply US Visa, show enough funds and give up the dream of becoming a Doctor or Dentist.

If you would like to become one in USA, take admission in a good US Unviersity that has a good PreMed program. US Universities don't have a designated PreMed major, you just do B.Sc and take required courses. After B.Sc apply to Med school.
