The Bay Centre Arcade is back in business!

On a summer’s night last January, first floor night-club LaLa Land in Lawson St burned down also causing damage to the Bay Arcade underneath.

After months of restricted access, the arcade is completely open for business again with the launch of the refurbished and expanded dental surgery now known as National Dental Care.

According to Rod from Blade Barbers, continued activity for the first few weeks for some operators was via a back alley off the lane.

“It was quite funny really. Our entrance was so hidden, people wondered where the path was leading too!”

LaLa Land is still not ready to trade again but downstairs it’s back to business as usual.

 


It’s smiles all round at the new National Dental Care clinic

The-National-Dental-Care_TeamIn December 2013, Bay Centre Dental was delighted to join National Dental Care (NDC) and looking forward to a new era at their Bay Centre Arcade clinic. But water damage after the January 2014 fire meant a change of plans and a temporary change of scene.

Dr Rod Whitehead at Byron Dental Centre welcomed the whole team into his Middleton Street clinic while the Arcade was brought back to life.

Now, Bay Centre Dental and Byron Dental Centre have joined together under the NDC banner and the brand new, bigger practice is opening its doors in the Arcade late August. With all-new modern equipment and ultra-comfortable furnishings, they’re as dedicated as ever to quality service in a relaxed, caring environment.

“Thanks to all our patients, both in Bay Centre Dental and Byron Bay Dental, for their understanding. And our practice team, who worked so hard to continue delivering an excellent standard of care.

“We can’t wait to welcome everyone to our new clinic and the revitalised Arcade. Call us today to find out more, or to make a booking.”
