Is it too early for my 10 year old daughter to wear braces?

Depends on her mouth and what need to be done. Some kids need intervention at 10 in order to widen there palate or correct spacing issues. Most kids get brace when they have lost all of their primary teeth. The best thing to do is see an orthodontist and get a consultation. One drawback with starting at 10 is often kids that age are not very meticulous with oral hygiene and staining and plaque can advance quickly.
Your regular dentist can also give you good information on when to begin treatment.
