Need to improve the spot healing brush tool to work better on negative dust. While the spot healing brush tool is getting better with content aware fill, it should have an option to only repair dust or white pixels. Most of the time this does a good job but it also destroys good pixels around the spot to be fixed when it didn’t need to.

If you are dealing with spots that you know are lighter, have you tried setting the spot healing brush blend mode to "darken"?
