Brought through the ranks of La Liga powerhouse Real Madrid, Dorado would play two league matches for the main squad during the 1999–2000 season, the first being a 1–1 away draw against Valencia CF on 20 February 2000. After that, he had second division stints with UD Salamanca and Sporting de Gijón.
In 2002–03 Dorado returned to Madrid and the top flight, also playing as backup with Rayo Vallecano. The following campaign he returned to Gijón as the undisputed first-choice, going on to compete in the second level a further three years.
In July 2006 Dorado moved to RCD Mallorca, but would be virtually absent from the team's lineups during two seasons, blocked by ex-FC Barcelona and future Spanish international Fernando Navarro. For 2008–09 he was unregistered by the Balearic Islands club, and was released in July 2009 with only seven official first-team appearances in three years combined.
