    Firstly, all universities in the UK want you to achieve AAA a levels and have AAA predicted grades when applying. Anything lower than that, will mean you will most likely get rejected because of the vast numbers of applicants applying at a certain university and so it is a very competitive course. I know that some universities have a contextual offer such as Bristol and I think that is for a number of things such as if you have been disadvantaged in life eg) parents have not gone to univeristy or don't have a job, live in a very low classed area and have gone to a very underachieving school where you have sat your A Levels. You cannot just meet one of this criteria, you have to meet them all, and usually the contextual offer is AAB.

    That being said, there is an 'Enhanced Support Programme' in Kings College London, only for students in London, and you have to go to an 'under achieving state school' to be eligible for requirments of BBB-AAA.
    Also Bristol offer a 'Gateway to Dentistry' course that have BBC a level requirements, but you cannot have predicted grades AAB or higher (meaning you need to get low predicted grades, but this is tricky, because if you are to apply to 5 dental schools, only one of these, Gateway to dentistry, require low predicted grades, and the others need AAA predicted).

    Please check the universities out via official websites and call them for more information.

    Hope that answers your question.
