    You're going to struggle without a B in GCSE maths but really it comes down to the individual college/tutors. Some may be willing to amend requirements for A-Levels, some may not.

    The bigger question that you need to ask yourself is why you want to become a dentist. It might seem to the tutor like it's a bit of a last minute decision because you've chosen completely different A-Levels. Really you need to think about it and try to convince your tutor why it's a good idea. You need to show them you're serious and are willing to put in the effort despite low GCSE grades.

    Still it may not be viable and you need to prepare for that situation and possibly come up with a few different options. Not sure if there are foundation degrees for dentistry but that might be an option?

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Good luck though.
