No you don't.

Your statement implies the assumption that your in-camera white balance is correct.  But that is a false assumption in the majority of cases.

Even if you use a fancy pants expodisc, you still need to check. :) It shouldn't be too bad though if they were all taken within the same light - simply sync the white balance settings between all the similarly lit ones.

Remember, too, that things get lost in translation between your camera's proprietary raw data and Adobe's rendering of it.  *And* the numbers for white balance are different when you're talking about setting it in-camera vs. correcting it in post-processing software.
