Step 1:
Create a comp 50x50pixels. Use the paint bucket tool and fill it black. Press Ctrl A to select all and Ctrl C to copy

Step 2:
Now go to the comp you like to add the effect. Press Ctrl V to paste the square into the comp. Move it to the upper left corner so it snaps in place.

Step 3:
Duplicate the square and snap it next to the first square. Then on your keyboard press the arrow key right 10times to make some space between the squares. Merge the layers together and duplicate again. This time snap to the bottom of the square and press the down arrow 10times to make some space.

Step 4: Repeat step 3 until you filled the comp.

Step 5: To adjust the size of the dots click (edit-Transform-Scale and hold down Shift to keep the proportions correct.

Step 6: Fool around of layer styles for fun!

Step 7: Enjoy

In this case it would probably be easier to define a pattern. In a new document (50x50 works) select all, offset the selection using the arrow keys up and to the left an equal amount, select all again and go to image > define pattern. This will be appended to your currently available patterns. You can apply it to a layer using the pattern overlay blending option set to multiply.

Forgot to include the "fill with black" part after you offset the selection (woops!).
