Hi, I have had a last minute change of mind from medicine to dentistry.

I was going to apply for medicine but I have come to the realisation that it probably won't be a suitable career choice for me since you spend such a long time studying.

The idea of dentistry seems more appealing.

I do A-level Chemistry, Biology, Physics & Maths with predicted A*A*A*A respectively (but I might drop physics and do an EPQ).

I have work experience in a GP practice and a hospital but I don't have work experience in a dental practice. I also started volunteering with children with Autism in July. Is it still possible for me to still apply for dentistry?

dentistry is still 5 years at uni.

U have good predictions but don't know ur GCSE grades they could affect chances and will need to do ucat soon if u are to apply for this years cycle. I strongly recommend doing dental work experience not only do the unis require it + look out for it it will also strengthen ur personal statement and u will know for sure if its for you

Yes definitely you're in the perfect time honestly. They have the same standards like completing the UCAT etc, just tailor your PS towards dentistry so you should be good to go. If it doesn't work out you try clearing (if they do) or gap year.
