You don't have to use the odbc driver. You have to add a reference to the MySQL connector assembly to be able to use it. If you are in visual studio, go to Project -> add refrence and locate MySql.Data and add it. You'll also have to add the proper usings after you've added the reference to your project of course:
using MySql.Data.MySqlClient;

Open in new window

You should be able to add by adding it to the reference folder. If you have installed the connector it will appear in the .NET tab. Otherwise locate the dll using the Browse tab.

If you installed it, it will appear in the first tab of the add reference dialog (after all the Microsoft assemblies):
