plotting with dotted lines, not dashed

I need to plot a function with a dotted line for a figure to be  
published.  As you may know PlotStyle->Dotted simply makes a dashed  
line with small dashes.  Since I already have a dashed line in the  
figure, I would prefer an actual dotted line for this function.

I tried ListPlot with PlotMarkers set to discs, but these get spaced  
according to the grid in the list I send to ListPlot.  In order to  
space them equally like Dashed does, I'd have to make a non-uniform  
grid that depends on the derivative of my function (which I don't have  
a closed form for).

Surely there is a reasonable way to plot with a dotted line, right?   
Any ideas?
