So, I need to go to the dentist. Cavity in a molar. big one. Doesn't hurt, aches if I eat sweet stuff or poke it, whatever.

Haven't been to the dentist in... over a year, i believe. And the place I went last time, I don't remember the name of, so I can't exactly call them up for my X-rays or whatever. (Previous dentist place probably does have my dentist stuff, from maybe 2, 3 years ago?)

So now I'm going to be calling dentists in my area, because conveniently there are a lot of them where I live now.

1) What questions do I need to ask when I call?

So far I have "Are you taking new patients," "Do you take this insurance"(and do they directly file it, or would i have to pay and get reimbursed), and "When would I be able to make an appointment?"

2) The cavity is right on the gumline on the outside of a molar. It's large enough to easily be visible. Am i basically fucked when I go in, or is this something they can deal with like a more "normal" cavity?

Edit: Why can't my teeth be smart and just move forward like shark teeth? It would solve part of my wisdom teeth and my cavity thing all in one go. :(
