Doris Wells (born Doris María Buonafina; born Caripito, 28 October 1941 - died Caracas, 20 September 1988) was a Venezuelan actress, writer and producer.

Her best-known television appearances were in Campeones, La trepadora, La Hora, Historia de tres hermanas, Renzo el Gitano, Amor Salvaje, Regina Carbonell, El Mulato and La fiera.
