The doors can be easily removed from the hinges to prevent any damage during construction.. With a proper finish on the jambs, the dust can be easily removed later.

Or just lay a piece of 6 mil. plastic over the door and use blue tape.
By leaving the door on all the dust will not be blowing into the rest of the house.

That would keep them from getting dinged though. Draping a painters tarp or a blanket over the opening works well to control dust. If access is not needed, then plastic and tape to seal the entire opening.
