No, you do not need to show dashes and wedges. Though it'd be good to understand why that is.

The wedge and dash aren’t necessarily needed for Lewis structures. Lavelle even said that himself. We can still draw the Lewis structures as normal. The wedge and dash were supposed to help students visualize the overall 3d shape in a 2d illustration.
