If you have a dovetailed sub-top and a bottom there is (IMHO) no need to do sliding dovetails for the other drawer supports, a stopped rabbet will be OK.
If you’re using Blum-style drawer slides I see no need for drawer dividers or supports. Personally I wouldn’t use metal slides on a solid wood dresser, but I know that for some people the added convenience outweighs a desire to use traditional construction methods.
