Do net dipole charges affect bases and acids?

Or do dipole moments not really affect whether something is an acid or base?

The greater the net dipole moment in a molecule, the stronger the acid/base, so the more it dissociates. That means that strong acids/bases have the highest electronegativity differences.

Because a large net dipole means a stronger bond, that would also mean a weaker acid.
