In brief: Smart lipo
Lipo is an invasive proceedure. Of course you have to be a doctor.

Laser teeth whitening is performed by direct supervision of a licensed Dentist.

In brief: Yes
I can't speak for smart lipo but for "laser" teeth whitening you must have a dental license.
Although lots of spas, salons and mall kiosks claim they are laser whitening they are really just shining a flashlight at some diluted teeth whitening get and legally they can't touch your mouth without a dental license.
