I'm not sure if this will help you - but I went to Google and looked for Dorian chords for piano - and ended up with Virtual Piano Chords.

There were a lot of entries for the guitar.

So, maybe you should Google Dorian Chords and see what you can find.

The Dorian Mode is an example of early music, prior the eight note scale. Modes are named after the ancient greek tribes: ie Locrian, Phrygian (sp?) Mixolidian.
A Doriam Mode is in effect an off-set Major Scale. An example of common chord usage across a Dorian would be Maj 7ths and 9ths.
