Dragon gives a minimal buff, but more importantly 280g per player.
That's equivalent to ~25 cs each. Almost equivalent to an Ace. It's huge.
Go for it any time you get a chance, and keep a timer on it, and a pink ward, so you can constantly secure dragon.
Generally you'll need a minimum of one madred's razor / Wriggle's Latern, and a minimum of 2 people (if you have smite) to take it early. But usually, you want to only take dragon early if their team is out of position (or dead) and your entire team is at dragon.
