Just 3 separate ideas:

1. I think the easiest way is to use grid and place them on the grid.

2 You can use Object->Repeat->.... and choose one of its possibility.

3.Use Effects->Distort&Transform

Once you've got a trio, rotate one or more in multiples of 60 degrees around another until you've got a circular arrangement of circles.

Edit: this arrangement gives us 24 wholly within a circle:

Here is a screenshot of a file I did long ago.

The equal spacing of the dots is really based upon a hexagon shape.

I then created some Pattern Swatches.

The end result is a dot seamless pattern.
