In brief: Yes
A doctor of dental surgery (dds) is qualified to extract teeth.
It is no fun for you and me;but that is well within their scope of practice.

In brief: Yes
"dds" means doctor of dental surgery, and tooth extraction is a form of dental surgery.
Good that you are checking credentials of anyone you are trusting to operate on you.
