In brief: Yes
Dairy is important because it provides high quantities of calcium which is important to bone health primarily.
Vitamin d is added to most dairy products as an artificial ingredient, again for bone health. In addition, remember, dairy products are widespread - cheese, yogurt, ice cream in addition to milk. However, you can take ca+d supplements instead and then you don't need dairy at all.
