My dentist gave me a x-ray of my teeth and it's about 5 meg. on a CD but can't see the data?

Try it in a different drive. If that doesn't work it was possibly a bad burn and needs to be redone.
Desktop drives are always more tolerant of bad burns / dodgy media than Laptop drives.

I think sometimes those medical images need a particular program to view them - it is usually on the CD with the image.

Or maybe they didn't finalise it. Try it in another machine then contact them if it doesn't work and see if they'll supply another.
Even now optical media has a problem with multiple formats and burning methods which are not always compatible with other machines or OS's or need particular software to read properly.
