    Here is a alternate way for those who asked for it…

    This method is good if you know the specific spacing between and size of the dots and if you plan on removing dots.

    -Make a circle with circle tool
    -make sure you have object selected with black arrow
    -hold down the Alt key and click somewhere on the screen to determine the center of your circle
    -a window will pop-up
    -determine a degree, i found that multiples of 5 worked well
    -hit copy
    -Press Command and D continuously to form a circle!

      After you select the object select the ROTATE tool, very important.. Then hold down Alt and click..
