You should check out the COVID-19 pages of the universities you are choosing to apply. For medicine, unis, like Oxbridge, have made work experience optional. However, work experience may give you an added advantage.

Work experience has never been a requirement for Oxbridge medicine - it will indeed give you an advantage though.

For Medicine there are two online work experience opportunities available at the moment - you could consider doing that Amina773663 and see if you can reflect on it to apply to Dentistry.

If you are interested, read the last few pages of https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...d.php?t=568666

Some dental schools have waived work experience requirements for 2021 entry. However you still need to demonstrate your interest in dentistry by doing wider reading for example, dentistry in the news (how it’s been impacted by COVID for example) or learning about NHS dentistry. There’s a free dentistry course on Future Learn you could do too. Search up on recent dental research so you have something to discuss.

Other extra-curricular activities you’ve done are also relevant, e.g. volunteering, or any other customer/patient focused roles such as a job or tutoring. As long as you can link them to dentistry you should be okay.
