Plaster is a specific material that is hard and may have hazard materials associated with it like lead..This is usually found in older homes over 50 years old.  At least test it with a lead testing kit before proceeding.

 

If the ceiling is a drywall compound in a textured pattern - then try applying a water mist during the demolition process.

 

Dust is kind of unavoidable in this type of project.  Consider applying a thin coat of drywall compound over the whole surface and then wet sanding to a smooth finish.
