biological sciences is not the same as biomed, it is biology whereas biomed does not have teaching on plants/plant biochem and has different modules that are based on human biology and chemistry and medicine. Biomed may be under medical sciences or medical biosciences or clinical sciences depending on the uni.
You need to focus on dentistry for your personal statement as it is highly competitive and they need to see commitment. Admissions tutors for biomed are highly understanding that their course is often a back up for medicine or dentistry and they know you must gear the statement for medicine or dentistry.
I have just graduated from a top London uni in biomedical sciences and enjoyed my subject a lot!
Good luck with your UKCAT and for the future- it looks like you have some good work experience so far

Thank you that was very helpful. Could I ask what uni you studied at and what A Level/AS level grades you had? Do you reckon I should fit in some biomedical sciences work experience despite my other work placements, I think it could boost my application or at least give me an insight into the career prospects?
Also, do you think it would be good to apply for an IBMS accredited course - some of top unis like King's don't offer it?
I applied to KCL and they still do the course from what I can find on their website above.
I think you have enough work experience to be very honest, but if lab experience comes up take it. It would help with insight but you will have far more opportunity to get lab experience when at uni and i certainly didn't have it when i applied.
