Dan's father (Japanese: ダンの父 Dan's father) is a character of the day who appeared in A Sandile Gusher of Change!.
Dan's father owns a Spa Resort on Route 1, a resort famous for its sand baths. He works there with his son, Dan. He first appeared in a flashback where Dan told Ash and Iris about the Sandile incident that had been occurring quite often for a few days, where they are scaring customers away.
Later, Ash, Iris, and Dan found out that the reason the Sandile were scaring the people away was that the geysers were erupting. Soon, it was seen that the geysers had done more good than harm and put Dan and his father back in business with a brand-new hot spring, which he treated Ash and Iris to.
