Pipe Dope vs Teflon Tape

I'm wanting to change my dishwasher water inlet valve. I have teflon tape in house but not pipe dope to use on the copper thread of the water inlet valve and connection to water supply. Can I use the teflon tape or should I get pipe dope? Thanks

If you don't use an "O" ring style connection then teflon tape is fine.
