    I don't know much about Dentistry but yes, you have a chance of getting an offer for Medicine. You would have to avoid universities who place a heavy emphasis on GCSE grades (not that your GCSEs aren't good - they are - but wherever you apply, you will be competing against a lot of people who have more A*s), and make sure the rest of your application is great. And get going with some work experience - the sooner you figure out which career would suit you best, the better.

    No, it shouldn't. Almost all universities want Chemistry plus one other science subject (Biology, Physics or Maths), but I'm not sure any university other than Cambridge stipulates what your third subject should be. You can see the requirements for 2018 entry at all UK medical schools here.
