I took Gen Chem 1 in the summer of 2009. I am planning to apply this coming June. Will that class still be good to apply with and enter dental school if accepted in 2014?

What about all the other pre-req classes? Are you planning to apply after having completed one class?

I will have all the others done. My question is just specifically for that one class because I am afraid it might be out of date due to the 5 year rule

Ur fine definitely. I think you can apply within ten years of taking the prerequisite.

I didn't have a problem with my Gen Chem 1 that I took about 10 years ago. I never questioned it though, so for your own piece of mind, just call the schools you're interested in and verify.

I'm a non-trad student and took the first semester of physics 12 years ago. It hasn't caused me any problems and no one has even brought it up in any interviews. I get the feeling that as long as you've done well in other science classes you've taken more recently it's not something most schools care about.

I would double check with every schools you're hoping to apply for. Some schools, like Arizona for example, are requiring that all prerequisites have been completed within 5 years of the date of application. Seems like your 2009 class will be fine for apply for this year, but maybe not if you need to reapply next year.
