    My sixth form is discouraging me because I don't have any A * . I really need advice so I can concentrate on getting work experience and volunteering or think of another career if my chances are low.

    should be fine tbh, most Unis arent very GCSE heavy tbh. Nail your UKCAT and make sure you get AAA predicted (or more) at a2 and you shouldnt have an issue. Unis like barts for example are very ukcat heavy and only set minimum gcse requirements (like AABBBC). Most dental schools will rank you on your ukcat not your gcse grades but they each have their own selection criteria.
