We can talk about it, but I would recommend to first do it and report your findings. This will likely answer some of the basic question about what you are actually working with.

If you changed your model from one variable to a number of dummy variables, would the R^2 increase considerably, supposing that the dummy variables helped to create a more accurate estimate of the dependent variable?

With kind regards

Seemingly the OP didn't mean dichotomization, but multiple dummies.
