Post What does a dying wheel bearing sound like?

I have this persistent squeak coming from the left front area of the car, and it squeaks with every rotation of the wheel.

It sounds a little like when I had a bent dust shield, but not so severe and I've checked the dust shield this time.

Time to take it to dealer?

99% that's not a wheel brg. Like the man siad, prob. pads, or V. slightly warped rotor. Do you only hear it with windows down, at very slow speeds etc? Or do you hear it while you're going down the road? If you don't, then ignore it, that basically could be considered "normal."

I hear it at low speeds, at highway speeds the road noise and wind cover it up. My brakes do need work on them, I'm pretty sure the rotors are BOTH warped up front. Kind of dissapointing on a car with only 23k miles on it.
