I don't believe atomic radius affects dipole moments ( or we haven't talked about it). To my understanding it affects polarization more so. Ionization energy is a contributing factor in calculating an element's electronegativity and electronegativity affects what molecules can create dipole bonds/moments. For instance a chlorine atom ( highly electronegative) would pull on the the electrons of a sodium atom ( less electronegative).
