dynamic dispatch on operator arguments?

Say I have a base class B and a derived class D.
Now I have some other class C in which I want to provide two functions:
void C::f(B* bObj);
void C::f(D* dObj);
The goal is that the version of f called should be determined by the
dynamic type of its argument. So if I had
B *pD = new D();
then cObj.f(pD) should call the second (D*) version of the function even
though the static type of pD is B*.
Is such a thing possible? If so, how?
