Help with Senior year schedule; AP Bio or Physics/both?

So I've taken 3 AP's so far: APUSH, AP Spanish Lang, and AP Psych. For my senior year I'm looking into taking AP Calculus AB and AP economics, but I'm not sure about taking AP Bio. I am looking into the dental field, but really all you need for this profession during college is to fulfill your prerequisites to get into dental school. Although I am a math person, I like science just as much, however I struggle more with science. I've heard it's important to take Physics during high school to gain that prior knowledge as the course may be rigorous during college, but I am also interested in the field of biology and it'll count as 5 college classes if I pass the AP exam, which will help me a lot. So I'm debating if whether I should take both or just one of them, and if so which? I have a 3.7 GPA right now and I don't want to hurt it as much by taking too many hard classes I may not be able to handle, but I also want to gain the knowledge. I also should mention I'm doing dual enrollment at the moment, though I don't think it will interfere with anything.

    How much free time do you have based on extra curricular stuff. Ap calc ab and ap bio would not be too bad but with physic also it may be tough since all 3 of those classes are pretty time intensive. Are you also planning on take ap lit because if so then you will definetly be having a lot of time intensive classes
