Default Gravity <10 before bottling?

Checked a witbier I plan to bottle this weekend last night, and the SG is down to 1.008 (from 1.054...pretty surprising attenuation). Since I am bottle conditioning, I'm a little worried it might not carbonate. Think I'll be OK, or is this going to be a dry, relatively flat beer?

Carbonation is only a function of the amount of priming sugar. However, at 85% attenuation and 1.008, the beer will be dry.
