You can buy brake pads that they call LOW DUST.Most likely someone installed low quality brake pads.

I'm assuming the dust is on the front wheels so the problem is with the back brakes not working properly. When this happens your front brakes are doing all the work and the pads get chewed up. That's where the dust and premature wear of the front pads comes from. HTH. -Jim
