Using Plot with the PlotStyle option:

   Plot[2x + 3, {x, -5, 5},
       PlotStyle -> {Thickness[0.012], Dashing[{0.001, 0.05}]}]

If you don't like the result -- which does not actually have "dots" -- 
then you might try to use ListPlot, for example:

   ListPlot[Table[2x + 3, {x, -5, 5, 0.25}],
        PlotStyle -> PointSize[0.015]]
