You can use a stove anti tip bracket to secure the dishwasher (click on link below)...Or you will need to install a thin piece of wood across the front from cabinet to cabinet then screw the dishwasher installation screws into the wood...There are also adhesives in which you can glue the wood strip to the bottom of the counter top....

My counter top installer glued a metal mounting plate under the counter top. Will this be enough to hold the dishwasher in place? Or should i use a side mounting kit>

That will be fine...If the unit is leveled out properly then you should be fine...Alot of the units we service do not even have the front screws installed...Just make sure your installer makes enough room so that the unit can be removed easily...Incase of repairs...
