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? Best, Robert
