Yes, there was a good bit of dust under between the outer plastic screen and the LCD panel. That's why I took it apart in the first place. I was very careful to make sure there was no visible dust anywhere and examined several times before reinstalling the screws. Of course, I'll admit there was no way for me to tell if every single speck was gone, but I used a good bit of compressed air. If there were any holdouts, they were stubborn.
I didn't remove any adhesive anywhere, so unless there's a hidden way for them to tell it has been opened, it went back exactly the way it came apart, with no problems at all.
