Dr. Doran has made his living a lot of different ways over the years, and he is happy being a dentist!
Dr. Doran has a small family, which includes his lovely wife and wonderful daughter, and they live nearby. He has lived and traveled all over America and almost every corner of the world, and he is very happy to make New England his home.
