This is not uncommon after brake jobs or some other reason like hitting something in the road.
The way to fix this is remove the backing plate and hammer it straight so that the bend is out of it or replace the backing plate.
Whether the mechanic did it or not, the fact is, it is bent and needs to be repaired or replaced.
They are not expensive so I am not sure why he didn't just replace it the first time but I attached the part and price if you are interested. Thanks
FYI - HD disc brakes means heavy duty. More then likely you need the without HD brakes.
