Or am I better off leveling as a dps spec, and respec'ing at cap?
Yes perfectly possible. I'm currently levelling a Sentinel that exact way. I will probably finish my class quest on Belsavis tonight and I'm at exactly the same level as the quest.

If you want to run more flashpoints than just Kuat Drive Yards all the time your best bet is healer or tank. Group finder queues as dps for the regular FPs can take a very long time.

It's a new type of flash point that bolsters players (grouping anyone 15-54 into one group) and doesn't require tanks or healers so the first 4 in the queue get in. "Tactical Flash Point". Check it out via Group Finder.

Lots of good suggestions posted already. I would just like to add that, with the XP boosts available now, any class can usually level through class story plus any other single XP-gaining activity. Normal flashpoints will pop faster for tanks and heals though.
  • class story + flashpoints (traditional or KDY)
  • class story + warzones
  • class story + GSF
  • class story + space missions
  • class story + planet missions

With all the XP boosts available (legacy, guild, CM consumables), you can almost level exclusively through class stories. During a double XP weekend, this is even more true.
