Creating Spiraling Dots in Illustrator

When asked by one of my Kean University students how to create a spiral of dots that get smaller from the outside of the spiral inward, my first thought was to start by drawing a spiral and adding a Dotted Stroke. Makes sense, but is it the best way to accomplish this task?

In this tutorial, Adobe Certified Instructor Jeff Witchel will demonstrate a couple of little-know ways to create dots in a spiral that get small and smaller as the spiral winds inward. The steps include quite a few tips, tricks, and secrets.
