Pierre-Herman Dosquet (4 March 1691 – 4 March 1777) was the fourth bishop of Quebec.

Born in Liège, Wallonia, Dosquet entered his study for the priesthood in 1715 and volunteered for the Canadian mission in 1722. Poor health had him back in France the next year and his return to Canada for a sustained period of time occurred in 1729.

He was bishop of the diocese from 1733 to 1739 and was succeeded by Bishop François-Louis de Pourroy de Lauberivière. He died in Paris.
