Sooo, is there any point in dipping new plants anymore?

I bought a couple plants a couple months back and ended up with a pond snail infestation. I added 3 Assassin Snails and they've pretty much taken care of it, but I do occasionally see some baby snails that quickly get eaten.

I'm fine with having a few snails every now and then because my Assassins keep things under control.

Is there any point in bleaching plants when my Assassins are so effective? I was thinking that maybe it could introduce a different type of snail, but to my knowledge, pond snails are the worst and I've already got them.

It could help with things like bacteria and parasites, especially if you don't know the source of the plants (or they came from a petstore).
