If you live in a dusty area it is a good idea to use the recirc button on your a/c control head. This will keep the dust to a minimum.
To get rid of the smell you can take a bottle of air freshener and spray it in the heater box air intake that is located just below the windshield on the right hand side of the van. Do this with the a/c on and blowers on high.
If you use recirc as much as possible the dust should slowly work it way out of the system.
If these fixes don't help the dash will have to be removed and a/c evaporator will have to be cleaned or replaced.

the A/C can also cause this have the A/C checked out because it could be the evaporator and also if the orifice is bad in the accumulator you will get this smell because the freon is not circulating and even when the A/C is not on the A/C compresser comes on when the defroster is on just in reverse

You need to make sure that the evaporator housing drain is clear. There will be a small tube or opening that usually drains out under the engine compartment near the passenger side. Run the A/C with the car raised safely, and look underneath, you should see it dripping, if not, you'll have to find where it is supposed to be dripping and clean it out with something like a pipe cleaner. Even if you see it dripping, clean it out. Then you have to buy a can of aerosol A/C disinfectant, this should be available at any good auto parts store. Turn the A/C on high and spray the disinfectant into the intake vent of the system. The location of the intake may depend how you have the A/C set. "Fresh" pulls from the outside, usually the valence right in front of the window, "recirculation" pulls from inside the car under the center of the dash. I would do both.

Check the carpet on the passenger side and see if it is damp or wet. Also, have you noticed white smoke coming from your vents? Does your windshield etc. fog up rather than defrost? If so, you probably have a heater core that is leaking and needs replaced.
Hope this helps! Good luck.
