You wouldn't have a dominant hand. You would have to get used to using your left-hand, to which you would then become left-handed.
Ambidextrous means you can use right and left hands equally well, but since you haven't got a right hand you can't use it at all! So it can't be ambidextrous.

I think to a degree it depends how old you were when you lost it, and how strong your "handedness" was in the first place. A young child would adapt much better than an adult. People who lose their dominant hand can re-learn most skills and become very agile with their non-dominant hand, but I'm not sure if their brain would actually readjust to make it a truly dominant hand.
