"Dr" - pronounciation? (French)

I've had a little basic French pronunciation issue with this for quite some time. Is the "dr" as in "voudrais" (and any other word) pronounced as a d and a glurteral r combined, or as a normal English "r"? Every time I pronounce it it comes out as a "t" and a rolled tongue "r" which I don't think is accurate. Any helps on the correct pronunciation?
