Clicking sound when braking on 2000 Honda Civic

Each time I engage the brakes, there is a clicking sound coming from the front of the car. Mechanic checked brakes and said they are fine--he thought it might be an issue w/ suspension struts and/or bushings, but having read up on these items, I would think I'd hear something when driving over bumps or rough road, and there's nothing! Mechanic said that this isn't a problem unless there's a change in handling or the sound--is that accurate?

In the front brakes there is a clip known as the anti rattle clip. when clip is gone you will hear a specific noise, sometimes thuds coming from brakes.
